    microsoft visual c++ would be the best, though I am sure you can find a free compiler some where. I would get a book on it at the store.

    I've actually found the GCC and G++ compilers to be the best for general purpose. And as an added bonus they are both free. I would recommend you download Dev-C++. It is an editor that comes packaged with these two compilers.

    If you are compiling specifically for an x86 machine and want the best optimizations then you should look into the Intel C++ compiler (though this is not free).

    As for books, I would recommend:
    C Programming Language (2nd Edition)
    The C++ Programming Language (Special 3rd Edition)

    Each book is authored by the respective language's creator.

    {for(ord){$i+=$_&7;grep(vec($s,$i++,1)=1,1..($_>>3)-4);}}print"$s\n";

    I would suggest you choose either C or C++ as the two are quite different from each other. C is procedural while C++ is object oriented.

    C is a medium-level programming language so its easy to get deep into the workings of your PC. Its also easier to tweak the language and create your own library functions.

    Regards.

    C or C++ ... the two are quite different from each other
    Hmm, I think these two languages are more similar to each other than any other pair of languages I know. Particularly if you consider that almost any C program is also a valid C++ program. What other two languages can you say that about?

    Essentially, C++ is C with classes.

    True, they are similar.

    Though, there is more than just the addition of classes and other Object Oriented features.

    good choice. I would argue that c++ is more similar with c++.net then c !

    True, infact, C isnt even an Object Oriented language. Though, still very powerful.

    Regards.
