Emacs is an excellent tool to use while learning to code c++.  There is a
very real learning curve, one that I am quite sure I am still scaling
myself,  but, once you get going, you will find out that you have a very
powerful editor at your command.

It is my choice of editors for coding c++, perl, php and the like.  I
really like the fact that is can be very easy to customize once you learn
how the .emacs file works.

Try it out- it is my opinion that you will learn c++ better by using Emacs
than by using the Visual c++ editor.
