I have decided....c++

Once again thanks for the advice that you all gave in my last thread. But i have decided on c++, for a couple of reasons. first its straight into it and i dont have to learn something then advance on to c++ then there is the point that a collegue teaches it so i can get some tidy help if i need it.
The problem i have now is this on the ububtu website it mentions a package called Anjuta for c++ on ubuntu. The pc i am learning on is not connected to the the question do i download and install it on that pc????

Once again thanks in advance for the help.....

Easiest way to install software on Ubuntu without internet connection is to go to another place where you have an internet connection and manually download the needed .deb (for Ubuntu) file(s) to a portable media such as usb memory key, optical disk, harddisk or something similar. Then bring the media to the pc where you want to install the software and simply run (double-click for example) the .deb files; Ubuntu should run gdebi installer (which asks for your password) which then installs the packages. Or you can install them using command line using dpkg with the -i option (means 'install'):
sudo dpkg -i package.deb
The downside in this method is that you'll need to (manually) find and download all the depending packages too, if there are any. To find out what they are, download the package you need, try to install it and if it fails, write down the list of missing dependencies; then obtain them too, re-try and repeat until it installs.

apt-cache search anjuta
reveals, among a few other lines, these:
anjuta - A GNOME development IDE, for C/C++
anjuta-common - A GNOME development IDE, for C/C++ - data files
anjuta-dbg - A GNOME development IDE, for C/C++ - debug files
anjuta-dev - A GNOME development IDE, for C/C++ - development files
So you'll need to find those two (four, if you think you need) packages: anjuta, anjuta-common (, anjuta-dbg, anjuta-dev). They should be fairly easy to find using a search engine or just by browsing to the Ubuntu reposity, for example here (you should use the mirror you normally do, see file /etc/apt/sources.list for example).
