Yes. you will need a compiler.
That's all.
I noticed that you specified C++ and not just C.
C++ is a superset of C... with support for object-oriented extensions.
Since it is a superset of C... all C programs will work with C++ compilers but not the other way around.

If C is good enough for you... and you're using Unix... gcc is a compiler that comes with Unix. You can get a free windows compiler on borland.com. There are probably many other free C++ compilers. Try searching Google.

Redhat and other linux systems usually come with gcc and then g++ which is basically just gcc with compiler options added for the supporting c++ extensions.

If you are wanting to program in Windows you will need some kind of commercial product such as Boreland C++ or Microsoft Visual C++

I am sure there are many other alternatives as well.

After you have the compiler then you are all set to go. You just need to learn how to program in C/C++

You can find lots of books on C and C+ here:

http://www.bigwebmaster.com/C_and_C++/Books/

I recommend the one by Tom Swan, that is the one I own and applies to the GNU environment. However if you are only interested in programming for Windows then you might want to try a different book. There are probably some very good internet website resources as well. I do not know any off hand though.

Just think of this guys. If i get accepted to this community college. I will be going for Computer Science. I have a book here that tells me what classes i need to take. It has alot to do with programming in C++ and some Java. How do you like that guys??

sounds great. take advantage of it, because a lot of schools don't teach
pure programming unless they're a tech-school of some sort.

good luck with it. :D

I would say definetely do it. I learned my first C++ from college actually. I had already known some Perl though on my own which helped me some.

i say screw school. learn everything on your own through online tutorials.

All you have to do to find 1000 different tutorials is think of creative ways to ask for the same thing in google.

start with..
"c tutorial"
"c++ tutorial"
"Advanced C tutorial"
"advanced C++ tutorial"
"learning C tutorial"

etc etc
School will only slow you down. you'll spend an entire year learning at the speed of the slowest person in the class. Thats what i hate about school.
I spent 3 years in university. I did learn some java and a hell of a lot of math... but i quit halfway through my 3rd year... within 6 months i tought myself 10 times more about computers then i had learned in university.

I am very good at teaching myself however, and maybe what was good for me will not be good for you.

Normally I would agree with that Ed, but in dsantamassino12 case I think he might do better in school. He seems to be the type who asks alot of questions, and if went through school for this he would have all the help he needs.

just think. Computer Science covers both hardware and software. So i can either be a programmer or i can work on the motherboard, hard drive, video card. and so... If i want i can even learn how to rebuild and reprogram the motherboard. That would be alot of fun.
