I am looking for the C++ compiler. Where I can get that compiler and how to install?

    I want to write one program that will schedule after each 5 minutes. It checks for the CSV file in the particular shared drive in the network. Then it checks the validity of the data in the file. Document will be created in the any database like Lotus Notes, Exchange. Mail will be sent to the any mail system like Notes, Exchange.  
  Is it possible with the C++?
 Thanks,
shrirang

>>Is it possible with the C++?

If a problem can be solved with a program, then C++ can do it.  Of course the same thing could also be said about most other programming languages.

>>I am looking for the C++ compiler

There is no such thing as "THE" C++ compiler.  There are many and the one you want or need depends on your operating system and budget.  I use Microsoft's Visual C++ and it's probably the most widely used C++ compiler for Windows.  There are alternatives, Borland has their C++ Builder and there is a free command line version that you can download.  On other platforms there are other C++ compilers available, some free, some not.  The GCC/GPP C/C++ compilers from GNU are perhaps the most widely used on unix/linux platforms.  There is also a version of GCC/GPP for Windows but I've never used it.

Do you have
   #include <iostream.h>

at the top of your code
or something different?

Also, your environment settings may not be correct.

The one in C:\ is the proper one.
You may need to take the path statement in the other one and add it to the one in c:\

use DJGPP or CYGWIN, search for either on yahoo. i sugesst these so you get familiar with make/gcc/ld, the core things you need to know to do C++, use a GUI compiler when you have got good with the basics. dont do what i done, become a good C++ person with VC++ then get asked to recompile a program on unix and not know what on earth you are doing

i have used both and recomend DJGPP for comand line progs and CYGWIN for windows apps as it comes with all the headers and libs for win32,winsock
