anything that has a drop down menu of methods and a good help file Laughing

I'm not sure how good MSDN is (its huge but mostly pointless) but VC++ has drop downs that show methods that objects have. I find that very helpful, especially when learning

ive bought msc++ and borland c++ (i haven't trie dyet though). i like dev c++ a lot more than vc++ because its free, has updates, and is really simple. i don't like vc++ cuase i have had problems compiling stuff that works great in dev. I guess you should still get vc++ just because it is made by ms and because its software that you will probably get your "money" out of because of all the features, though if you download it, chances are you will now get the msdn. i still have vc++ and i don't like it as much as dev, even though it has more features. i think i just rambled. try it with dev first before you go and "buy" something because you don't want to waste your time, so make sure you like c++ first.
