    The most used compiler is: gcc (linux and windows)

    gcc is available for different languages: C, C++, Java, Eifel, Algol, Python, Perl, Kylix (=Delphi for Linux)......

    g++ a special version for C++ based on gcc

    There also: lcc / lcc win32 (windows)

    The Microsoft compiler in the Visual Studio
    Visual Studio is an IDE for the Microsoft Compiler

    DevC++, which uses gcc for compiling (DevC++ is an IDE)
    www.bloodshed.net

    Boreland aka "Borland" comes with compilers and IDE

    Kdevelop aka Kdevel comes with Linux, ide for C/C++, Java and other languages, uses gcc / g++


    The best compiler / ide combo are:
    Microsoft Visual Studio: www.microsoft.com, price: 60-2000$
    DevC++: www.bloodshed.net, price: free
    Kdevelop: www.kde.org, price: free, (standard ide for linux)


    THE BEST FREE COMPILER WITH IDE IS: DevC++

    GCC is a good one, Borland C++ is also good. Both compilers can be easily attached to an IDE. Good free IDE's are for example Crimson Editor and ConTEXT. These IDE's support many langauges. At home I use Crimson Editor and have compilers for C, C++ and Java attached to it.

    best c++ compiler: gcc, borland, dev c++
    best free c++ compiler: gcc, dev c++
    best free c++ compiler built with ide: dev c++

    note that gcc/g++ can be used with ide like anjuta.
    but I myself use gcc/g++ and vim editor.
    slackware 10.0; kernel 2.6.7
    gcc 3.4.0; glibc 2.3.2; vim editor
    migrating to freebsd 5.4
