I garuntee this question has been asked about 200 times, im sorry, but im poor and cant afford a compiler from greedy Bill Gates, who sits there with his massive ammounts of excess money while the poor people starve. Anyways where was I? Oh yes, should I download DJGPP? Its freeware and how many of you guys reccommend it? What should I get? Thanks in advance.

I used DJGPP very happily for a long time, though I think it''s getting a bit out of date in these post-DOS days. Most people seem to use something called Dev-C++, though I can''t tell you anything at all about it cos I got a free copy of Visual Studio.NET Pro through my uni instead :-P

You might also consider developing under linux. Linux is the undisputed king when it comes to free stuff. Hell, you can download the entire operating system off the internet.

This question is aked more than 200 times but OK:
There''s Dev C++ download from Www.bloodshed.com
Borland C++ compiler from www.borland.com
And Intel C++ compiler 7.1 FOR LINUX pretty good if you wanna learn C++ but poor job as a game platform [lack od direct X]
[you could switch after you master the C++ to windows

1. Dev-C++: What I use. It has a nice dev environment, works well with OpenGL, and uses the MingW compiler.
2. GCC: The GNU C Compiler. Works well, and the original MingW compiler.
3. Borland: Borland offers free command line compilers. Not reccomended.
