With Visual Basic the IDE was Visual Basic what program do you use to program with C++?

I personally use Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, pricewise im not too sure about it because my school gave it to me. I know for a fact that it is pretty easy to use as im a novice programmer as well and it seems to work for me fine

I am a novice too and I when I started learning I began using Dev-C++ then migrated to VC++ EE by Microsoft that is free. I liked it and now I just brought Visual Studio 2005. This is the complete package for programmer I really like it. It has (C++, C#, J#, Visual Basic and some other tools for debugging)

If you are still reading this post, then I suggest using Microsoft's products until you learn the language better. In my opinion, other compilers have a higher chance of having bugs in them then big name compilers. Also, different compilers will group your work together differently, and they will be picky with your code. Some would let you code in a way that others wouldn't, so go with a compiler that you can get help from experienced users until you know the language better.
