    Newbie needs help

    Hello,
    I am completely new to C/C++ programing and would like to learn sometime how to.

    What is a good compiler to use? I want to make a simple program, one to generate a random name out of a list.


    Thats about it... thanks.

    Well I do believe http://www.Borland.com has a good c/c++ compiler, but no IDE (The place you write your program).

    So you could get one with IDE from http://www.bloodshed.nu.

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

    Use Bloodshed Dev-
    Reason 1- Its Free
    Reason 2- U r new to C++, so u dont need a VC++ compiler right away.

    Read a couple of books-
    Start with Beginner books and move to OOP related books.

    Visit this site's forums daily-
    U may not b able to solve other's problems or have any querries, but it helps u increase your knowledge.There is much more to any language than just what is written in books.

    Do not dream of creating Hi-Fi programs from day-1.
    Take 1 step at a time.
    Create simple programs first.
