    The first thing you need to learn before even programming, is searching... if you would have searched something like bloodshed, or dev-cpp or even just the version number of 4.9.9.2 you would have seen that a fair number of us use it almost exclusivly.

    It will be good if you want to learn programming...
    Gotta love the "please fix this for me, but I'm not going to tell you which functions we're allowed to use" posts.

    DEV compiler is good and works always OK///if you are to learn C++, i think its best.no need to use VC or Builder's console,which is a small function of a huge mass platform and very slow each time you start it.

    now i form a habit that,when making a part function of a big project,i like to use DEV's console to make it and debug,then add it to the project in VC or .Net. Its quite efficient,try it.

    It's a good idea to use whatever the author recommends.

    Compilers/IDEs are not the easiest things to learn. And, in the beginning, you are trying to learn a programming language, how to use your IDE, and what programing is all about.

    For the same reason, I always recommend that students taking their first programming class use the same compiler as the instructor and their fellow students.
