View Full Version : N00b question

April 30th, 2007, 11:10 AM
I'm going to start learning C++ and wanted to practice in linux. I've done a bit of Java programming before so i'm not totally new to programming, only in linux.

This may be a stupid question, but which compiler do i use in ubuntu for C++? I'm assuming it already has a compiler but can't find any commands to put in :confused:

Sorry for my noobness...:)

The GNU compiler is the Ubuntu's repositories, the faster way to install it is maybe installing the build-essential package.

If you also want to use an IDE, you should try using Anjuta (Gnome based) or KDevelop (KDE based).

Good luck!
