    C++ in linux?

    This may sound as an completely stupid question. But I'm really confused.

    I want to program in C++ for Linux. I'm using Eclipse now, and I installed the C/C++ Development Tools.

    I wanted to compile something really simple:

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main() {
    cout << "Hello World!";
    return 0;
    What should I do to get this to work?

    I think most Linux distros include the g++ compiler (my Ubuntu has it) already installed. Find a good text editor (I use SCiTE) and compile it with g++
    Ubuntu Linux / Vista Home Premium (for games)
    SCiTE text editor, G++ compiler
