If you are coding on Windows platform, you might want to check out
MinGW at http://www.mingw.org and also Dev-C++, an IDE for MinGW at:

I would recommend that you have a look at the GCC compiler. You will
find it at gcc.gnu.org. It pretty much runs on every single platform
you can think off and as per your requirement, its free. Look at
http://gcc.gnu.org/install/specific.html to see if your platform of
choice is there.

If you are coding on Windows platform, you might want to check out Borland
C++5.5 at http:\\www.borland.com?

Good Luck!

http://www.gnu.org/directory/GNU/gpp.html

It's pretty good and its _very_ widely used. On the rare occasions when
I have issues with it, I can usually find somebody else who has had the
same issue and solved it. The documentation is pretty good, too.

In general, the best free compilers and other development utilities are
developed on Linux these days. If you're planning to do a lot of
development, it's probably worth running Linux. Oh, and almost all
distributions of linux come with recent versions of GCC (the Gnu
compiler collection) pre-installed, along with a bunch of other good
stuff (debuggers, etc.).
