I only know one programming language: BASIC.
I have LTP BASIC (Learn to Program BASIC) from Interplay, to write BASIC programs.

Where can I find some kind of software package that allows me to learn C++ and write C++ programs?

I've done some research and I've found out that what I'm looking for is called a "compiler."

Does anyone know where to find a compiler for C++?

...only it's a little big, considering I got the slowest fricking internet connection on the earth.

Download Rate: 4kbps
Estimated Download Time: 90 mins.

Would there possibly be any other ones I could get?
Or a zipped download of this same one?

You could try http://www.cygwin.com/ a *nix emmulator that comes with gcc a rather universal compiler (C/C++, Java, Pascal, Ada, etc).  :)

Note that these compilers will allow you to code C++, but they won't teach you....

You could try Dev-C++ (google for it)...it's free and it's graphical (built in editor etc).

And to learn C/C++ you could always visit CProgramming.com. They have alsorts, from tutorials all the way to advanced topics such as Windows programming and Networking, all with examples.

Also, if you're more inclined towards making games, there's GameTutorials, they also have a fair amount of code examples, specifically for game mechanics such as randomization and graphics, all the way up to OpenGL programming.

Have fun, and good luck!

Uhuh, cos er, Miah is like a C++ god or something...

</sarcasm>

Seriously, teach yourself by looking at code samples and working through them, and ask somebody about anything you don't understand.

I now have downloaded the "PocketC" compiler to my Clié SJ22 handheld. Now all I need is to learn the language. Any links to any sites that have "courses" or "tutorials" for programming in C++?


BTW speaking of links, how do you put a link into a post?

Nevermind, don't download PocketC (it sucks)
And I found a free C++ IDE/Compiler that also has a tutorial
