C++/What compiler is good

Question
I want a compiler, I dont care if its simple but it should have the normal tools. Im new and Ive only tried borlands turbo C++ and the Windows C++ compiler but they're slow. I want something fast. So that compiling doesnt take as long as writing the script itself.

Answer
Hello charbar, thank you for the question.

C++ in general compiles slowly compared to most other languages. They way you write your code has some to do with compilation speed. But, overall, no compiler is going to be noticeably different.
