    Question Ok new to C++ quick questions

    I wana start learning C++ but not quite sure what I will need.

    Could anyone simply recommend a compiler I can use something very light weight and anything else I will need to start.

    Like Java needs the JVM and other things to start programming in Java. Do I need to install anything like that for C++?

    I need both windows XP software and software for my Linux Ubuntu

    Thanks

    you already have gcc, g++ on linux. You can install mingw to cross-compile on linux for windows.
    I can't suggest something for windows, sorry.

    You can run gcc and g++ on Windows if you want as well.
