C++ Setting Up

To begin our C++ journey let us first download and set up a C++ IDE and text editor.

IDE or integrated development environment is basically a software application  which provides the programmers with comprehensive facilities for software development.

In this course we will be using Dev C++ which is a free full-featured IDE (integrated development environment)distributed  for programming in C and C++. It was released in 1998. It was developed by Collin Laplace.

Software is a set of instructions and data that tells a computer how to work.

The link given below will take you to the page from where you can download Dev C++.
