    You mean like g++
    Which is the same compiler which is at the heart of dev-c++

    Your Linux distro should have come with a compiler, and It's probably installed on your system!!! g++ or gcc??? I dunno, I'm not a Linux guy.

    TheFreeCountry.com has links to several free compilers (For various platforms).

    DevC++ is only for windows. Bad luck! try anjuta. Sorry, I don't know if it is any good, but I don't know any other IDE's for linux rather than that one, and the extremely popular Eclipse, which I don't know if it has C++ tools...

    Want IDEs? Try Emacs!
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Keep joking.. I've used pico with telnet, then compiling with gcc and runing the app on the remote server!!!!

    But I wasn't joking. I truly love Emacs.
    Vi on the other hand, is short for Vile! Bah.. How could you ever remember all those commands: +yJdU/ and all that.

    The linux distribution should come with a compiler... G++, GCC (like they said above). There is no IDE but it's a good compiler...

    As they said above all linux distors come with g++ as a compiler. For a development environment you can also try Kdevelop (comes with kde). If you can do with a text editor both Kwrite and Gedit have really good syntax highlighting.

    Dev-C++ is not a compiler anyway, it's an IDE

    As to a GOOD compiler, Intel has one.

    am I the only one that sees this question as a little backwards?

    GCC/G++ is the compiler that comes with most *nix distributions, and Dev-C++ uses a MingW port of GCC to compile the programs.

    Essentially, when you're using Dev-C++, you're using a compiler originally built for *nix that has since been ported to windows.

    gcc was originally created with no specific operating system in mind
