    Default Good C++ compiler?

    Any suggestions for good and free C++ compilers/IDMs? It might be useful to know I've never written anything in C or C++ before, but I have some experience with Java and have used JBuilder.

    The gcc suite will include anything you might need. It comes as standard with any GNU distribution, and is available for Windows most easily as part of the Dev-C++ IDE.

    What's a gcc suite or a GNU distribution? In any case am I correct in saying that whatever they are, they come with Dev-C++ IDE?

    What's a gcc suite
    The GNU Compiler Collection, one of the best compiler suites available.
    or a GNU distribution?
    GNU is Not Unix: a UNIX-like distribution of Free utilities distributed with most Free kernels -- Linux, BSD, Hurd, and the like.
    In any case am I correct in saying that whatever they are, they come with Dev-C++ IDE?
    Yes.

    Thanks for the help. Just two questions. Is there a way to change the color of the bracket highlighting (I don't like black)? And is there a way for the program to automatically indent the closing brace of a block, as with the following?

    Code:
    function () {
        //stuff
        }
    vs.
    Code:
    function () {
        //stuff
    }

    The answer to both of your questions is "probably." I don't use Dev-C++ any more: it's Windows-only and IMO, KDevelop is better anyway. Play around in the options and documentation and see what you can do?
