C++ ("C Plus Plus", pronounced /ˌsiːˌplʌsˈplʌs/) is a general-purpose programming language. It is regarded as a middle-level language, as it comprises a combination of both high-level and low-level language features.[1] It was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979 at Bell Labs as an enhancement to the C programming language and originally named "C with Classes". It was renamed to C++ in 1983.

C++ is widely used in the software industry. Some of its application domains include systems software, device drivers, embedded software, high-performance server and client applications, and entertainment software such as video games. Several groups provide both free and commercial C++ compiler software, including the GNU Project, Microsoft, Intel, Borland and others.

The language began as enhancements to C, first adding classes, then virtual functions, operator overloading, multiple inheritance, templates, and exception handling among other features. After years of development, the C++ programming language standard was ratified in 1998 as ISO/IEC 14882:1998. The current standard is the 2003 version, ISO/IEC 14882:2003. The next standard version (known informally as C++0x) is in development.

C++ is a statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm, compiled language where compilation creates machine code for a target machine hardware.

As for an Integrated Development Environment(IDE), I would suggest using Blooshed Dev-C++. More info here.

Simple Hello World program:

#include <iostream>				  //Library used input/output stream

using namespace std;				 //Using this we don't have to put the .h
									 //at the end of iostream(Research it)

int main() {
	cout << "Hello World!" << endl;  //Output to console
	
	system("PAUSE");				 //Pauses the system to give you time to see 
									 //the output on the console
	return 0; 
}

I'm pretty new too, so you might not take my advice, but generally you learn C++ after you have some knowledge in a easier programming language such as ruby, perl or php. People who start with C++ tend to get confused. I assume you're trying to make a video game or somethin'. Other languages could be used as well. To actually write the codes, you need to get a program such as microsoft visual C++, which you can download at http://www.microsoft.com/express.
