Dev-C++ will do fine for compiling. I recommend C++ in 21 days, but everyone tends to recommend the book that they started with.

EDIT: You can find the second edition of C++ in 21 Days free on the internet.

I''ve....I''ve never seen anyone so polite on the Iternet before....

I hope it doesn''t catch on! I''d hate people to expect ME to be polite like that :D

You could try a book called "Windows Game Programming for Dummies" - it''s not bad at all, although it assumes a reasonable level of proficiency in C/C++. Another place to try is http://www.gametutorials.com/ . They have a nice set of console (that''s text) games which help teach very basic C++, and lead right up to a basic RPG.

G''luck,

RM.

c++ in 21 days is a good choice , and you should buy a book about algorithms...only learning what a programming language can do is boring , i got algorithms in c (from sedgewick, because i try to be a c programmer its a quite good book

bye
