C++ Compiler
I want to start working with C++ just for kicks.

What is the best free compiler? Any experiences? Any that I should stay away from?

Visual C++ 2008 Express
I'll check it out. That's what I was leaning towards in the first place. I just hate downloading all these programs to find one that I like. Thanks.

First C++

then PHP...

I've got the work cut out for me Wink

Sorry to kick this thread up.

If you want to learn to use QM better, is learning C++ a good way to go?

With "learn to use QM better" I mean:
- learning the more "advanced" things that QM can do
- learning how to 'hook into' the Windows API correctly
C++ probably will be easier to learn after QM. As well as QM after C++.

C++, QM and other programming languages can use the same Windows API. Learn in MSDN Library.

When you know C++ a little, you can find C++ code on the internet and use something similar in QM. Unlike many other languages, C++ often uses Windows API directly, like you can use in QM. C++ is the best language if you want full and easy access to all Windows API. In MSDN Library all Windows API reference is in C++.
Thank you for this info!
