Here or GnuPG-Users are good choices.  GnuPG-Users is probably a better
choice, but here works fine.

C++ may be part of the problem.  Have you tried telling NetBeans this is a
straight C program?  (You will need to change your code for it to compile
as C: #include <cstdlib> should become #include <stdlib.h>, and you'll need
to remove #include <iostream> and the using statement.)

I would not recommend using C libraries if you're just beginning to learn
C++.  Modern C++ code is written in a vastly different style than C.  If
you're just learning C++ and you're linking against C, you're going to
effectively be trying to learn how to program in two different languages at
the same time.

Please don't think I'm trying to discourage you -- nothing of the sort. 
C++ and C are both worth learning.  It's just that trying to learn them
both at the same time will be a bit of a challenge.  :)

Best of luck!
