new to C++

I'm currently on an FIRST FRC robotics team and I programmed our robot in Lab view last year, but I'm trying to learn C++. I'm wondering what is the best software to use in order to compile the code to a robot in FRC? And basically anything to help me get started. I don't know that much about programming, my knowledge of Lab view is minimal. Thanks
(software not to just compile, but to write the code in as well)

Then I suggest an IDE. If you are programming on Windows - Code::Blocks with MinGW or Microsoft Visual C++
Mac OS X - Maybe Xcode
Linux - I don't know of an IDE yet but g++(compiler) and gdb(debugger) are the best AFAIK
Aceix is correct and I would suggest Code::Blocks with MinGW ...

Make sure its MinGW as this is a compiler built in to the IDE itself so you can code/compile your code to an exe file to run later.

Hope we helped you, Any questions can be directed to someone else because I am also new to programming, unless you want tuts-vids-and much more .... then you can private message me and I will pull some great resources for you to read/watch/test and more.

Good Luck,
