C++ Compiler in Ubuntu?

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I was under the impression that Ubuntu came with a bunch of software. However, I went to the Software Center to see if a C++ compiler was available, but I didn't see one listed; there was only, "Calculator", "Text Editor", etc. And I see the LibreOffice products. What is the recommended C++ compiler for Ubuntu and where do I find it? If it is already here, what am I overlooking, since I don't see it? (I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 and am running it from a USB drive.) (HowTos)
