Question Programming on YDL 6.0. How do I?

Sorry, I'm completely new to linux. I just installed it on my PS3 yesterday. I want to start programming with it, but i don't know how. I went under Apps and then to the Programming tab and theres 4 options: GNI browser, DevHelp, Script Recorder, and Glade User Interface Builder.
The only one that looks like you can actually make stuff with is the Glade one, but i'm not intrested in making GUIs, i just want to write programs in C++. Do i have to download something extra to get a Compiler of some sort. I thought that YDL came with a devKit for programming with the BE Processor, but i hope that the glade thing is NOT it. Am i missing something? or where can i download the necessary things to program on my PS3 using YDL 6.0.

You may already have the GNU C/C++ compiler installed. In a console, run 'locate gcc | less' (without quotes). If you get a message about the locate database being more that 8 days old, su to root and run 'updatedb'. When it's done, then try the locate command (either as root or as user).

You can use text editors to write your code (vim, emacs, nedit, and others). Emacs and nedit also allow you to compile and run the code you have written. You can also run the C/C++ compiler from the command line in a console.
