Don't do it! TC++ is evil! It was a great little DOS compiler for its time, but it pre-dates the ANSI/ISO standardization and therefore isn't very ANSI compliant.

So, if you are looking for TC++ as a tool to learn C++, you'd be much better off getting something that conforms to the ANSI/ISO standards, or you are going to learn stuff that is considered deprecated.

For Windows, you'd be much better off getting something like the free Borland or Microsoft command-line compilers, or one of the GCC ports like they Cygwin tools, or DevC++. With these, you can build Win32 binaries, where TC++ only builds 8-bit DOS binaries.

I fully agree with deissum. TC++ belongs in a museum. It should not be used for any sort of developement. If you're using Windows, there are several high-quality compilers available for free. When I use Windows, I use Cygwin that, among loads of other apps, comes with GCC (though you need to select it manually when installning Cygwin).
