sudo aptitude download build-essential

This downloads the .deb package to your current directory. I think build-essential is the correct package to get gcc, g++ etc.

You could have figured this out by reading the man pages.

man aptitude

sudo apt-get install g++

or you can browse and download the deb from packages.ubuntu.com

You can also install it from the ubuntu cd without needing a internet connection.
Open a terminal and

sudo apt-cdrom add
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install build-essential
