    I'm new...I have Borland C++ builder at school, but want for home, what to get??

    I'm pretty much new to programming..I really like the class I'm taking and would like to take it farther...I've been using Borland C++ builder 4 at school, but I'd like something to use at home when this class is over next month...What should I get? Is there some site that I can download it from?? Or should I go out and buy something?? (I kinda don't wanna do that since I don't have a lot of cash right now) Any advice would be helpful. Thanks

    huh?

    Okay, My teacher is a comlete idiot who only thinks she knows how to program..I even know that and I never programmed anything before this class... I really like programming...I need the whole she-bang...I don't even know what "borland command-line tools" is...Please help me..I don't really know where to start...I've downloaded dev++ 4 from bloodshed.net, but when it finishes it says something like "installer error...blah blah...and then it says something like i could try the /NCRC or NRCR..or something command, but it isn't recommended...I don't know what that means???? I admit I don't know exaclty what I'm doing, but I want to learn...Please help
