The excellent C/C++ compiler gcc is part of FreeBSD. FreeBSD itself
is written in C, so you can expect excellent support :). If you
mean by "graphic functions" the equivalent of Microsoft's MFC classes
to write GUIs, you can have a look at gnome/gtk+ (for C) or kde/qt
(for C++). If you mean an IDE, glade and kdevelop can be quite useful.

FreeBSD supports a lot of additional programming languages if you
install their compilers or interpreters via the ports system. Have
a look at /usr/ports/lang for a huge list!

Please browse the documentation on FreeBSD's website:
