good compiler Not an IDE

What is the best compiler that doesn't use an IDE as well. Will "make" still work with C++. I run Linux and I feel like I like to be old school but thats only because I like to know what I'm doing not just CTL space and type a little here and there. Preferably I would like a console compiler that I can type my code in gedit with.
Install gcc, compile a file with

g++ myfile.cpp

look up more options once you get that working ;)

here is a link to get started but there are tons of docs for it
