This is my first post on here, so sorry if this thread has been done already.
I decided a couple days ago that (for now) I want to do computer programming when I go to college in the fall. However, I'm pretty much a n00b to it. I know some basic html, and that's about it. My dad's a programmer though, and said that it's easy, and I'm pretty good with computers, so yeah. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew of a good, FREE compiler for C++, since I guess I'm going to learn that language first, unless there's one I should get good with first. My dad's buying a book so he can learn too, so I'll have him to help me out.
