It depends on the language you use.

For C/C++, I recommend Dev-C++.

When you say "BASIC" do you meen you want to program in the BASIC
style language or do you want a programming language which can make
basic (eg simple) programs?

If you are doing BASIC then you can use microsoft visual basic.  Or
you can just do a google search for QBASIC, which was free with MS-DOS
and I *think* can be downloaded for free from some sites.  I'm not
positive but there might also be one called GBASIC.

You can get some very good c++ compilers under the GNU license, eg
free download.    Try GCC
