I am planning on learning and teaching myself Visual C++. Do I need any specific type of software to compile my programs? or would a normal C++ compiler do the trick?

To lean visual c++ you would actually need to have visual C++ =)
A 'normal' C++ complier will not compile the VC++ specific stuff that you are probably wanting to learn.  Get VC++ it rocks.  The editor/environment alone is worth it.

Last time I checked VC++ was pretty expensive. But everyone I talk to says its worth it. So i guess I will get it. Thanks for the help
