This is my first post and I'm here because I want to learn C++. I have a book on C++ and I've already had some practice using a compiler, but when I tried using source code later on in the book, or off the internet it wouldn't compile. I need a compiler that is guaranteed to properly compile everything while still being free. Once I get enough money I'll probably get Visual C++ but at this moment I can't buy anything.

Visual c++ is definitely the way to go. Shell out the 100$ and get it as soon as possible. But for now you can use bloodshed C++ . Just google it.

MinGW is the windows port of the GNU C/C++ compiler which is free.

You can get several free IDEs for it; including DevC++ and MinGW Studio.

However, in my opinion you can't go wrong with the Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 compiler which is the same optimising compiler that ships with Visual Studio. You will need the Platform SDK from Microsoft though.

EDIT:

There's a whole host of free IDEs listed in this thread
