I am not quite sure if I post this request in the correct form, but I wonder if anyone knows of any free, and good c++ compilers? I am completely new to c++, but I have some experience in other languages, like pascal. However I am an poor man, and want to test my how far my skills can reach using c++, and by the power of beeing poor, I cannot use the largest companies compilers (like microsoft) but I am on a winxp system and need a free compiler.. Can anyone help me?

Dev C++ is an IDE, it comes with MingW's port of GCC compiler. Great Compiler by the way and its ***free***. http://www.bloodshed.net/download.html
You will notice they have a Pascal IDE too, with the Free pascal compiler.
But yeah... Visual Studio another IDE that comes with Microsoft's compiler is a nice choice too for its very user friendly interface.(IMO the best IDE for windows os)
