Alright, so I really want to learn programming, but I am getting very discouraged with it right now. What has happened is that I downloaded my text editor, and when I went to get a compiler, I've searched for at least an hour and cannot find anything. I am planning to learn a simple language at first, such as C or C++. If you know of any editors/compilers that are easy to understand or would help me please give me a link.
-thanks!

Google 'C compiler' ;)

First link is gcc, a cli based compiler.
Second link is DevC++ an IDE (got a gui) based compiler, probably easier if you're just starting.

First you said C and now you want books on C++, which one is it? Also, I wouldn't call C or C++ an easy language but they are both good choices as a first.
