The beginners section that you claim to have read does contain a large listing of nice resources (books, tutorials, etc.) that will help you get started...

You can download a trial/personal version of a C++ compiler:
Borland C++ Builder Enterprise Trial
Bloodshed Dev-C++ 4.0 Trial

then buy a beginners C++ book (recommended) or check out the tutorials at this site, here at microsoft, or just put "C++ beginner tutorial" into Google and select from hundreds.

[EDIT]: BTW, the first link google returns is descibed as "c, c++, c__,tutorial, newbie, beginner, how, to, how to program, ... "

I would recommend picking up Bloodshed Dev-C++ from bloodshed.net and then going to a store, or amazon.com and buying a book. Look around for reviews, and then just buy a book, read it, inhale, and suck in all of the information in it.

Michalson: There is no trial version of Dev-C++ 4. The full version is available for free (under the GPL).

In my experience Dev-C++ 5 beta 2 is *alot* more stable than version 4.

To download either version go to bloodshed.net.

Unfortunately I was looking on download.com for it, which reports Bloodshed (incorrectly apparently) as a trial licence.

Has anyone got the syntax highlighting - thingie to work in Dev-C++ Beta 2 ? If I recall correctly, Dev-C++ crashed when I tried to change the highlighting.
