gcc / g++ etc are cross-platform and are available for Windows:
http://gcc.gnu.org/ . If you want a development environment to go with
that, apparently Eclipse is a popular Open Source platform (although I've
not tried it) http://www.eclipse.org/ .
Alternatively the Microsoft compiler is included as part of the Windows
ACE8-E4C0C0716ADB&displaylang=en . They also provide a Development
Environment in the form of the Visual Studio Express products, which are
free and targeted at hobbyists / students. The C++ version can be found at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/visualc/ (you'll want the Platform
SDK as well).

It is true.
Attempt to use regular MySql C API without success with Borland 5.02. I
cannot compile also the most simple example of the official source
distribuited with mysql daemon inst.
Is g++ the linux C compiler ? My attempt to introduce linux in my school is,
unfortunately, impraticable for more reason.
Suggestion for any C, C++ environment to use with XP to develop with
students (16-19 years old)?
