I just started my new job at a heating cable/resistor manufacturing plant (head lab technician...woohoo!). I'm just starting a small project to grab a signal from a serial port and display an appropriate message on a terminal somewhere else. Now here's my problem. This must be coded in C++. My computer at work has no C++ compiler. The company has an extremely strict policy that no new software be installed on company computers. I spoke to one of the women in the administrative department, and she told me it was because of licensing concerns. I gave her a brief runthrough of what the GPL was, and she said that GPL'd software would be acceptable (not trampling on any licenses, right?). However, the only C++ compiler I know of that is GPL'd is GCC, and that hasn't been ported to Windows (works on Cygwin, but I asked if that could be installed and she said no freakin way). So here's my question: does anyone know of any other totally free (as in GPL/BSD licenses) C++ compilers, or any C++ compilers with another free license? Alternatively, can anyone think of any way to get a C++ compiler on my computer at work? Thanks.
EDIT: I guess I should give the OS, huh? Whoops. It's running Win95, and will almost certainly stay that way.
