I'm not a complete noob when it comes to programming. I started off in TRS-80 basic and progressed to Pascal, Visual Basic, Matlab, and a bit of assembly language and HDL.

I know in a strictly "textbook" sense what makes an object oriented program (encapsulation, methods, etc.) but have no real experience bending code with OOP and I need some quickly! A job may be materializing for me in which I need to have some smarts in C++ to be competitive.
And so with all that in mind, what is the best C++ IDE for a noobie? What IDE is going to enable me to grasp the concepts, syntax, and usage of C++ as quickly as possible?
If it comes with a compiler then that's a bonus.
If you have a better idea (like a specific on line course perhaps?) than just a popular Amazon.com book on C++ and my own stumbling around in the dark then let's have it.
Thanks in advance!
