    C++ coding programs? Do you mean compilers or integrated development environments?

    Or open source projects writen in C++?
    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.

    visual studio probably is the most accepted c++ "coding program"
    it has an awesome intellisense,compiler and is most up to date with c++ 11( as far is i know)
    it is free to use non commercial
    the downside, only a windows compiler

    netbeans also has c++ compiler, which allows u to compile to mac / windows / linux
    but haven't used it yet (for c++) so i dont really have an opinion about it, i did used it once for java and i really hated it, but that was 3 or 4 years ago xD

    you dont have to believe my word on it, try it out and see what u like most

    here u have stroustrup's list of compilers , its not quite up to date, but it could get u somewhere to start
    C++ Compilers

    I can't really see how you'd like Visual Studio but hate NetBeans as it seemed like NetBeans was trying to copy most of VS's layout and functionality. (And the alternative for Java would be Eclipse, which I didn't care as much for, but I haven't really used it enough to give a fair judgement.)

    To add to the discussion though, there's also the option of using gcc. You can use it with Windows through cygwin. That does mean you'd do most of your programming in a plain text editor though (or maybe a fancy one like emacs, I guess).
