Beginner Needs Help

P: 1
Hello everyone,

I recently took my interest of programming to a new level and actually started to look around at different things. This is really embarassing but I have a stupid question...when I started playing with Python I had to download a version of Python to type the code...what program do I use to type C++ code? I've searched for a C++ program but nothing comes up so I'm a bit lost. Oh, and I just checked out the classes by Ganon11...I recommend them to anyone. They are more on my level so I recommend them to anyone.

Thanks for any help that you guys can give,
Andy

If you are on linux use emacs. type ALT+x and then c++-mode to get emacs show you the right colors.

On windows I don't know too much, but I remeber that Borland would do it, but I can't say if it is a good or bad program.

You can type C (and for that matter any other language) in any old code editor.

I use JEdit at home (MSVC++ at work).

If you are already familiar with Python editor there may be no reason why you can't use that to create a C++ file.
