Graphics have very little to do with your compiler and everything to do with your OS and your chosen graphics libraries.

That said, you're using a twenty year old compiler that speaks a kind of mutant pre-standarisation C++ that modern compilers will rightly refuse to even look at. Why not get yourself a modern, correct C++ compiler for free?

I use GCC 4.7.1. along with KDevelop or QtCreator (IDE Integrated Development Environment) on Fedora Linux. These are all free. Ubuntu is another popular Linux OS.

QtCreator has the ability to do GUI (Graphic User Interface) programs.


Good luck !!!

I use IBM XL C/C++ and Sun Studio, but they aren't free.

Of the free compilers, I have the current versions of GCC, Clang++, Intel C/C++, and Visual Studio for various non-commercial hobby activities such as posting to forums.

And yes, as everyone else said, Turbo C++ cannot even be called a C++ compiler.


MS visual studio [...] I wrote a program but how to freaking run it ?

Press Ctrl-F5
I use MinGW with GCC 4.6.2
GCC is probably the most popular one, followed by MSVC (microsoft's Visual C++) for win only. MinGW is a port of GCC for windows
