Question wasn't sure where to post this one { Moderator / Administrator} C++ Issues.


What can I download to Program in C++ With similarities to older Borland C++ Turbo 4.5 ? And has a way to edit Header and Lib File with it ? With Downloadable example scripts and tons of Headers and Libaries for it ? OR should I try to find something easier ?

Ah! I share fond, but fading memories of Borland!

If you are re-starting with C/C++ after a long absence, I would suggest giving the native *nix tools and environment a try first. There are several IDEs available, but my experience and what I have seen of the efforts of others with them, is that you end up learning the IDE features but not so much the language and native tools.

On Linux you will have a choice of compilers and all the Standard Library features always available, plus a huge number of third party libraries either readily available or installed already.

Open a terminal, set up a simple directory structure to organize your examples, and have fun! And be sure to ask for help in the Programming forum when necessary!

Good luck!

A syntax highlighting text editor, and g++.

And the docs for whatever you are trying to use.
https://en.cppreference.com/w/
https://developers.google.com/edu/c++/getting-started
https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/c-plus-plus/?ref=shm
http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/libstdc++/
https://doc.qt.io/

Beyond that, an IDE if you want.
