program for writing/compiling C++ in Fedora


I am very new to Linux and I just installed Fedora 2. I am taking some programing classes in college and I want to write and compile my programs on my laptop that I installed Linux on. Is there any particular program that I need to download that will make this task easier? Or is there one already a part of my installation? Please help me to understand this wonderful world of Linux better...

Well, I use Slackware10.0.
There're Qt Designer (AFAIK, KDE is made up on Qt).
Kdevelop - smth like Qt (almost Qt with smth different?)
Glade interface designer (I hate this one)
Or just console?
I think u know that c++ compiler is "g++" and c - "gcc".

Some people say that Qt is better than Borland Delphi, C++ Builder...

Politricks - "Sepultura"

Linux Editors

Will this Slackware10.0 Qt Designer work as an editor as well? i.e. as say the Crimson Editor does in Windows for example?

I don't know what is Crimson Editor, but Qt has a tool to edit. I can only say that it's unlike Borland (and M$ too) products, it's another world If u don't like Qt Editor you can type in Emacs, vi, KWrite... they are all made up to write codes, they all highlight reserved words (at least make a view of it ).

E.g. I like to write htmls for my useless homepage in KWrite.

And forget Windows. Read LQ -> forums -> general -> Slackware propaganda.

Remember I'm a Linux Newbie, so this may sound stupid. But, what do I need to do to unzip these type of files in Linux? Do I need to install some sort of unzip program?

What files are you referring to? Where did you get them? Details man! We need details!

if the file ends with tar.gz then use tar xvzf filename.tar.gz
if the file ends with tar.bz2 then use tar jxvf filename.tar.bz2

this will extract the files to the directory in which the filename.tar.gz/bz2 currently resides

if the file is neither gz or bz2 then give us the file type
