ANSI compliant C++ compiler

Specs: Windows 7 professional, Intel duo quad 9550
How/where can I get an ANSI compliant C++ compiler to work with win7 32-bit OS? Not free bee or too expensive. I am just start to learn this oop language. The book I am using needs to compile the exercise programs.

I'd suggest Visual C++ Express, but you specifically say you don't want a free one. I'm a bit stuck trying to find a reasonably priced non-free compiler.

Yeah, C++ is either free, or hundreds of dollars. There is no middle ground, and most of the pay stuff has a free equivalent, which is missing a few features.

The actual compiler in Visual C++ Express is the same one that is used in all versions of Visual C++; it's the libraries and ancilliary functionality that differs. And it's ANSI compliant. I'm mystified as to why the OP wants to pay (but not too much) for a C++ compiler when there are very good ones available at no cost.

Hi, Razor2.3: Thank you very much for pointing me to the C++ compiler of the small differences between the hundreds dollars and fee ones. I have been built computer for myself in the past years. Now I am looking to the programming side and start to learn the C++ programming, the other side of the computer (hard ware). It is much more interesting than the building stuff. and got a lot to learn and a long way to go and needs lots of help likyou and ijak gave to me. The book Iam reading requires compiling short OOP programs in the exercises. The book is a well written one, but did not give clear direction about where or how to get a compiler and lib. The book came into market before Win7. That's why I mentioned OS win7. Much appreciations for your reply. Have a nice day. wmtpenn@yahoo.com9Observer)
