Hey, does anyone have any tips on studying and remembering how to program for C++? Also, does anyone know where and which website to find a proper compiler to download for it? Because the ones I've been using don't work properly. I'd be forever thankful if someone helped me out.

@brevs_bread Hi Brev, the GCC compiler is the de facto standard (at least in the non-Windows world). In Linux it comes pre-installed, but you have to install it manually in Windows, unless you decide to use an IDE, that comes bundled with MinGW (GCC for Windows), like Qt Creator. As for studying and remembering: find a good book and practice (do as many exercises as you can). A good IDE will tell you what you are doing wrong and remind you. That's it 😀​

@brevs_bread honestly, for me, i'm always looking at references for things. the stuff that you use more often, you'll start to remember, so don't sweat it. focus more on grokking the language, and how it likes to operate compared to other languages.

are you on a linux system? g++ should do you just fine. going thru tutorials on make is highly recommended
