I will be using following ebook to learn or revise C++:
C++ for Computer Science and Engineering, A step by step approach for learning C++ programming for beginners. Author is Vic Broquard.
It uses a step-by-step
building block approach to gradiently learn how to solve computer science and engineering
problems in the C++ language.
Is Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition good enough? I believe this is a free compiler. Any reason I shouldn't use this compiler.
What other compiler choices do I have? Can I use GNU compiler? Where do I get it from?
If free compiler is good enough for my needs, that would be great. Otherwise, I'll purchase one.
I have Intel i7 core PC running Windows 7.
