    I typed the following because I forgot what the first post asked and I worked so hard on it I'm leaving it.

    Ok since your asking witch compiler to get I can persume you are newbie and thus just starting out. Second I am going to take a very wild guess and say that you are useing windows.

    Right now well your working with the C/C++ standards such as:
    PHP Code:
    //comment
    //header files
    #include <iostream.h> //yes I know about iostreame and namespace 

    //program
    int main() // your entrance point
    { / opening brakent

    int num
    //creates an interger called num 
    //prints goodbye..starting program on the screen
    cout>>"goodbye world, I'm starting to program"
    cin<<num//takes input. Serves as crapy pause function
    return 0returns 0
    // closeing braket. 

    I would recomend getting Dev C++ because of it's ease of use, and cost. Also you might want to Get Visual C++ intro edition in order to get a feel for the reguler versions of Visual C++.

    Now once you start to get into away from console program, and start using third party libaries such as Windows 32 API, opengl, directx, sdl, ect. I would recomend getting a copy of Borlands Free Command line compiler and vide. Both of witch are free. The reason for doing so is because lots of this information is compiler specific and ports to Dev C++ are rare, and the intro addtion of Visual C++ prevents you from distributing your applications you create.

    If you have monney to spend and want to spend it I would say either get your a version of Visual C++, one of Borlands, or Code warrior. Though to make your life simple I would go for Visual C++.net standard edition if you feel the need to spend monney.

    Now once you meet these requirments:
    A. You have plenty of monney to spend
    B. Your an anvance programer. (aka someone like Sayeh, salam, sunlight.

    or
    You need to spend a lot of monney quickly.

    then I would recomed getting Code Warrior, and other top of the line compilers.

    Exclamation Newbie? NO WAY

    Hey Sentaku senshi, you have everything wrong. I'm not all the way a newbie, first of all. 2nd of all I'm using DJGPP. All I want to know is what compiler to get OK? (BTW DONT USE FUSHIA!!!)

    its impossible to be wrong when answering a question for a cocky newbie who can't do anything himself.
