    Hi,

    I am new to C++ development and want to know what is the most used
    compiler for C++ on Windows and Linux(g++).

    Also, if you could point out few IDEs which are free both in windows as
    well as Linux.

    Thanks

    You already got the most used compiler on Linux i.e. g++ from GNU.

    As for Windows, I think MSVC++ compiler is the most used compiler.

    Free IDE for Windows :

    Eclipse supports C++ http://www.eclipse.org/
    Dev-C++ uses windows port of g++ http://www.bloodshed.net/
    Emacs and gvim port from cygwin

    Free IDE for Linux

    Anjuta http://www.anjuta.org
    Kdevelop which comes with KDE
    Ever venerable vim and emacs

    Most of the text editors on Linux do provide with syntax highlighting
    for C++

    Hi!

    For C++ IDE I recommend www.CodeBlocks.org , it's free and easy to
    use, because it's usese wxWidgets it's cross platform, nice looking,
    have some greate plugins, has support for manny compilers:

    * GNU GCC (Linux)
    * MinGW GCC (Win32)
    * Microsoft's Visual C++ Free Toolkit 2003 (Win32)
    * Borland's C++ Compiler 5.5 (Win32)
    * DigitalMars (Win32)
    * OpenWatcom (Win32)
    * Small Device C Compiler (SDCC)
    * Intel C++ compiler

    For windows you can download it with MINGW compiler :
    http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/codeblocks/codeblocks-1.0rc2_mingw...
    or without :
    http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/codeblocks/codeblocks-1.0rc2.exe?d...

    It also has support for GDB (Gnu Debug tool), but if you want to use
    it don't forget to enable it from the menu Project/Build
    option/Compiler/Compiler flags and here be sure that you use the
    "Produce debugging symbols" option.
    Here you can find a nice turorial transleted from french :
