compiling a c++ program

i have a bunch of c++ files (i.e .cpp, .h) i need to compile into a executable program, but don't have the software. i don't need the editing software for now,
just need to compile. is there a program i can download for free that will do this?

It very much depends on what is exactly is in the code...

But gcc is a decent free C++ compiler... possibly the simplest way to get it is to install cygwin... see www.cygwin.com

However, whether it will compile your program or not cannot be judged without seeing the source code.

A more 'Windows' like free compiler is available from: http://www.borland.com/bcppbuilder/freecompiler/

There are several free compilers available, here is a list:

If your code is pure C++ (i.e. there are no OS dependent bits in it) I would really reccomend GCC - it's one of the best out there. I personally use the Bloodshed Dev-C++ package - it's basically a front-end for gcc. It is easy to use and you can simply add your .cpp and .h files to a project, hit compile and that's it! It will also generate a makefile for you if you manually want to compile + link your files with gcc. If your project is very complex you might want to tweak the makefile to get it to build.

DJGPP is gcc port for windows,a good free compiler that has almost everything gcc has, and its for windows.

Try Borland C++ Free Compiler. It is traditionally fast, reliable and ANSI compatible.

look in http://www.borland.com/cbuilder/cppcomp/index.html
