Hello, I'm currently taking my first steps in programming, and I thought that creating a simple text-based game would be a good start. Due to some ... slight confusion surrounding the title of a Youtube tutorial, I managed to program one in Batch while thinking I had done it in C++. While it was still valuable coding experience (and I do plan on showing it off once I've got a few more things completed), I'd still like to try making one in C++. For that, I believe I need a compiler in addition to Notepad++. Can anybody either disprove this notion or recommend a good compiler?
