mapping a key to compile a program in vim

Hi to everyone. I recently came upon the map option in vim. So I thought I could map the F5 key to save me the trouble of pressing the semicolon and up keys too many times. The problem is I want to parse the filename. For example if my filename is "file.cpp" I'd like to do:
:g++ -o file file.cpp
Is there a way to get only the filename, without the extension so I can pass it to -o?
Thanks in advance.

I don't use g++ so I don't know about its vim errorformats and related things, but try this.

For reference, this is what I have to compile using javac and an errorformat line to be able to navigate (and highlight) errors in the code as reported by javac:
set makeprg=javac\ %
set errorformat=%A%f:%l:\ %m,%-Z%p^,%-C%.%#
