    anybody know where i can get a free program that lets me program in C++?

    Ive been wanting to learn how make things in C++ for a long time but i cant find any programs that let me do it.

    Notepad++. It's a free text-editing program like the standard Windows Notepad. It has support for syntax highlighting and syntax folding for a number of languages, including PHP, Java, Perl, Python, and C++.

    Compiling on the other hand, haven't the faintest idea.

    No problem, but be aware that this will only allow you to create and edit the source code. You'll need a compiler in order to use the code.

    That being said, it's better than nothing, and should last you until you find something that fits your needs.

    Go for Dev-C++ instead
    Bloodshed Software - Dev-C++

    Includes a compiler, has a simple project manager, highlighting, intelligent tabs, multiple tab browsing, function completion, etc. Basically has most the expensive and heavy IDEs have, but won't stop your computer from running smoothly.

    Not that I wouldn't recommend you'd head over to Sun and download a java IDE instead, of course, and that you'd learn to program java first. ;)

    Seriously, though - to understand pointers and objects, java is extremely much more simple. Afterwards - the syntax is similar (even if the abstract classes and interfaces behave differently), and you can expand easily to C++. Also, learning to program with Visual C is not really a good idea. It might be tempting since you get a bit for free. But in the end, you'll be a much better programmer if you learn things from the bottom first. ..When you get to use your class- collection in a program for the first time, you'll appreciate that.
