Hi
No GNU C++ compiler is for C and C++ programs compilation........If you are looking for a program like VB for Linux then I suggest you see this
http://sourceforge.net/projects/vb4linux/
but the problem is that it is still in the development stage........

I wouldn't dare compare C++ to Visual Basic. Basically gcc is a C and C++ compiler. It allows you to write programs using the C and C++ languages. It can also compile Java as well as other languages (Fortran, Ada...).

Is there anything particular you are looking for?

If you are looking for a C/C++ Integrated Development Environment (IDE) - I'd suggest Anjuta http://anjuta.sourceforge.net/

Many ask fo r something in Linux that'd be like in Windows. That was the reason some cool peoples came up with a list. Thingas on Windows that map to things on Linux. A big list that keeps on growing. Soon enough Windows will be covered on all bases.
THE LIST

gcc is a compiler. The compiler dosent write the code for you and in fact, its not even a program in the sense that you are implying (i.e. you dont write the code in the compiler) You can write code in any text editor (vi, emacs, ect). You simply save out the file with a particular extension depending on what language you are programming in and then use the compiler to compile the program into an executable program. Make sense? There are also development environments like mentioned above which are probably more along the lines of what you mean in your posts. For a budding programmer I would not necessarily use them yet though as you will have a much easier time justing a bog standard run of the mill text editor. Its up to you though as all the tools that you will need are freely downloadable for Linux unlike windows where you have to pay for everything
