I need help picking a compiler.
I'm really new to programming but I would like to learn C++
but I've already hit a snag, I don't know what to look for in a compiler!
I guess my question is this:
What should i use as a compiler? I'm not sure exactly what i want to do yet since I'm not even sure what's possible (Though I'd like to get into a programming job someday)
Also if it helps I'm running windows vista.
I've heard a lot about Bloodshed's compiler but I don't know how to get a hold of it. The website here said to get version 4 but that link is broken and i don't know where to get it.
Anyways, any information you guys could provide me would be awesome! I'm sorry if it's an obvious question that's been asked a million times over. I'm just not sure how to start out is all.
