i know its not server side, but i thougth you would know.

Where can i get a copy of c++(hopefully cheap) Do you know of any good books that might come with c and a compiler? I don't need a basic book, i've used several languages.

My favorite C++ book is C++ for dumbies, which does come with a compiler.

Even better would be to install linux, they have all the developement software there for free.

Yeah, GCC (GNU C Compiler) is great and comes with every Linux distribution...

Try O'Reilly's Practical C++ Programming if you are in need of a good book on C++, I've never seen a "for dummies" book on any subject that didn't suck. And you don't need to go and install linux to get a free compiler, whatever OS you are using now is fine. http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/ if you are using windows, as I assume. If not, gcc will run on any unix.

... but it's very difficult to compile and get working with Win32- anyone
have a hint/tutorial/clue how to do this? Gnu.org is virtually silent on this
subject.

You can get GNU for windows? I thought GNU and GCC were linux only products, I don't see why those who stess open source, would design software that would help to secure the Devil(M$) on his thrown...

I think it may be a bitch to install because it is not ment for the windows system. But if you have a link to GCC for windows feel free to pass it by me, and I will see if I could give you a hand on the installation.

A port of GCC 2.95.x is included with the Cygwin environment...

I played with Cygwin for a while. I thought it was so cool to have bash for my shell on windoze.

Linux only? GNU predates linux by a good margin. Linux is one little kernel that isn't even very good. GNU software has been around for ages and because of that, linux distros were formed using the linux kernel and all of GNU's software.

And kevincar, see the link I already posted, that's a windows port of gcc. Its linked to on the GNU website actually.
