Default Looking for a C++ Compiler

Hey!

I'm in the search for a C++ compiler. I'm gonna be using it a lot when getting into college, so I figured now would be a GREAT time to learn it.

My question is, are there any decent compilers out there? Say, $50 or under?

You could also get Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition from Microsoft. It's free, however the "real" Microsoft coding tools are much much more expensive!

Dev C++ is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) as opposed to a compiler. You can actually, in reality, use any compiler you want with it but I believe the default is MinGW.

Dev C++ is actually really flexible, though, although it lacks the raw power and serious features of Visual Studio.

DevC++ is excellent, also have a look at ultimate++ for guis. At least they compile pure C++ not MS managed C++!

I use Borland's C++ Builder 5.5 with Textpad. It's extremely lightweight and once you get it set up it's easy to use.
