Downloading C++ Compiler

Hi I am a complete beginner to C++. I have a Mac and I was wondering is how I would program C++. I know I could write out code in a simple text edit program, but how do I get the compilers? I tried going to the GCC compiler site and they only have the compilers for PC. People mentioned that xCode works for Mac, but I have no clue what that is. Please help. Thanks
I need compiler for my windows computer. Any help.....
