C++ Recommendation for good C++ compiler for the Mac OSx 10.11.x and WINDOWS 11

Kab2024

New Coder
I have an old iMac OSx 10.11.x, and a new WINDOWS 11 laptop.
I would like to install a good C, C++ compliler for the bothe PCs.
What compilers would be good for these 2x PCs?
I am a retuunig programmer after long hiatus, hence would be
better if I could use a user freindly IDE for the compiler.

If it is too expensive to buy the commercial IDE compilers, then
I could live with text file source coding and EXE compilers too.
 
I've never really worked with C++ myself, but I've heard of GCC for compiling (works on both MacOS and Windows).
I'm pretty sure Visual Studio comes with a compiler, however that's only for windows.

I don't think GCC should be too hard to set up, I was able to use it when I now started coding and knew nothing more than std::cout << "hello world";

Thanks for your info, Yes, GCC compiler sounds familiar. It sounds like compiler from UNIX or LINUX environment.
Will have a look at GCC installation process, from downloading to full installation.

From my old iMac OSx10.11.6, it can certinlay run Term program, which enables me to access the UNIX part of the OS. Maybe I can run CC from there too? I haven't tried yet, but was kinda thinking of trying it.
