Free C/C++ compiler (win32) through:
gcc/g++ on cygwin http://www.cygwin.com
or with the ide
And of course any *NIX will come with gcc/g++ pre-installed.
But learning C/C++ right off the bat makes for bad programming habits
and loss of hair. I would still recommend getting down the basics of
programming with Python and then moving onto C or C++ (especially if you
are learning on your own). Of course that is if these languages suit
your project better.
