Hi, I have just finished reading through the article ''Which compiler, language etc etc'' in the For Beginners section where it recomends to use the compiler Microsoft Visual C++. I have found this compiler at Amazon.co.uk http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00004U6ZC/202-6427307-9637422 I just wanted to check with the forum to see if the Standard Edition of this software will be enough for me. I am new to C++ however I have extensive knowledge of other languages such as PHP which is loosly based on C++, I intend to start learning how to make games as a hobby and I would like to distribute those games to friends and family etc, so is this Compiler the right edition for me. TIA Ade

If you''re new to C/C++ I highly suggest you use the free Dev C++ (an IDE, Compiler, and Linker). Not only will is save you money, it will give you a chance to make sure that when (if) you buy a non-free compiler you''re making a good investment.

Dev C++ uses the MinGW32 and the namesake of open source compilers GCC. The only potential problem you''ll have with Dev C++ is in the IDE, it''s a very high quality package .

Thanks for the replies, I will go with that open source one for now just while I am playing, but I already have the cash put by for the right compiler, it''s just there are so many it is hard to pick the right one, so I''ll order the Microsoft one and while I wait play with this free one.

Thanks again.
