I'm getting back to my programming studies, and I need a new compiler. The old one I have works in non-windows Windows 3.1. I remember liking that Borland environment alright, but I seem to be drawn toward VisualC++. And do compiler softwares necessarily come with tutorials? After all, I still am a newbie. In other words, I want something that can produce good, dependable results, but would also like to factor in things like my own ease-of-use. I have a good Dietel course I plan to use. Comments?

Hi Brookston,

VisualC++ costs $, dont know about Borland

A free compiler for Win32 can be found at: http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~lcc-win32 or another
C++ Free compiler: Dev-C++ at http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html

With regard to the merits of compilers, however, thing in terms of compiler suites that come with a debugger for the language you are using - don't leave home without it!

There are some very good tutorials on the Internet with regard to C++, just google.
