    Exclamation Basic Programming Reqs

    Hi, I'm a beginner at C++ programming and at school we use Ubuntu to make and compile files. I want to practice at home but my laptop uses Windows 7 OS. I don't want to make my laptop a dual OS just for programming.

    So what programs can I use to emulate the effect of the 'terminal' in Ubuntu? I use Notepad++ to create files but if anyone can suggest something better that'd be cool.

    I need help please, I have a project due in 3 days.

    Don't cross-post.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    If you want a terminal window, then open a terminal window (i.e. "cmd"). You can get emacs or vim or whatever you want to edit with.
