    Microsoft Visual C++ (you can get it for under 15 bucks but how you get it is not my problem)
    Compiler: MSVC++ 6.0

    I like VC++ as its caters for all my needs....

    CodeWarrior is also a real cool compiler.....but I dont use it as much as I am more used to VC++

    Devc++ is pretty neat, especially as its free.

    <edit> and if you only want to spend 15 bucks, I suggest looking at the free or open source stuff...or trying your luck at Ebay...I dont think you are going to get anything for that much</edit>

    Now you got 4.... give it time
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Borland C++ 5.02

    its better than 5.5, it comes with an IDE and can compile to more platforms...it does cost money however, unlike 5.5

    Once again, my default comment for these posts:
    Dev-C++ is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment), not a compiler. The compiler that comes with it is MinGW, a Windows port of GCC (probably the most popular Unix environment compiler).

    Here's a useful link:

    g++ is #2

    I use DevC++, which of course as someone pointed out means I'm actually using MingW.

    The only reason I use it is because its a free, small download and does what I need (which isn't much).

    I could use VC++ but I can't be bothered to install it.

    In Linux, which I use occasionally, I just use command-line GCC... although KDevelop is a really great program.

    probably

    If you are learning, however, I would suggest pcGrasp as your IDE with DJGPP as your compiler.
