Simply !!

G’day all,
quite simply, I am trying to learn C++. I am looking for a cheap, or free, program to use. My daughter studied ‘C’ in university some years ago, and as a retired bloke, I want to fill in my spare time learning some new tricks.

I have her old text books here however, when I tried to download some “free” programs, they all turned out to be Visual C, or Visual C++.
Not a good start I’m afraid. Could someone out there hold me by the hand and direct me to someplace, where I can get the correct program to practice on ??.

I don’t wish to seem cheap here, but until I find out whether or not I am able to understand this new language, I do not wish to spend many $$'s finding out.

Cheers for now,
