Do you know of a free c++ compiler.  I am teaching a C++ course and many of my students would like to work at home.  Since they are high school students, it would be nice to offer them a cost-free means of doing so.

I recomend Visual C++.  I think the student version is about $100 and while expensive compared to the alternatives it is worth it.  The superior debugging environment and the integrated on-line help alone make it worth it.  
You can get DJGPP, a free 32-bit C/C++ compiler than runs on DOS
and Win32.  It generates 32-bit executables for DOS.

Also, check out the integrated development environment, RHIDE.

I have looked at djgpp and while it does C++, it is somewhat tricky to use at first.  I had to search for the C++ header files and some of the C header files, included by default in the C++ files, seem to have missing pieces.
