Tell me please, what program should be installed on the computer to learn the programming language C ++?

And there are free programs, and if there is something where you can download them?

And how much power does a computer need (will a netbook work)?

Look here at this thread, the pros and cons of this or that IDE are pretty well disassembled.

    I understand Windows? If yes, then for a beginner I would advise Code :: Blocks - a free, easy-to-learn IDE (there you can simply write a cpp file and run it). In general, I recommend installing linux and programming with vim / g ++. In my opinion, this is the ideal.

    • Thanks for the answer! And what about the computer, what can you advise? I would appreciate it. - Andrei2
    • You need a little power, any modern computer will do. - dzhioev pm
    • The ideal does not exist. A bunch of vim / g ++ works well under Windows (see cygwin or mingw / msys). (Some troubles are only with help'ami, but, in the presence of the Internet, this is not a problem). - alexlz
    • Possible without cygwin and MSYS. I use MinGW gcc / g ++ make, UnixUtils and Emacs on Windows. - avp
    • You can of course, but this is not the same The console in Windows is very terrible and inconvenient. And there is no package manager. And in Linux: apt-get install g ++ vim make and went to write programs. - dzhioev

    I had a Lenovo U160 netbook, you can look at the specifications in the internet, so I used Visual Studio 2010 and didn’t slow anything, the compilation went well, though the applications wrote console.

      To begin with, it would not be bad for you to familiarize yourself with the computer and its internal structure, read in Wikipedia how such programs are called (in which code is written) and find out that these are compilers. It's too early for you to program, too early, honestly ...

        Um .. Language is not usually learned by the program.

        If we are talking about choosing a compiler, then I like Visual Studio. It makes sense to take the newest. Express and Community versions are free. Professional is available free of charge for DreamSpark students.

        Yes, the netbook will do. I had a 2010 studio on a netbook - it worked well for myself. Just keep in mind that VS has limitations linking the VS version with the minimum operating system.
