hmm, gcc != gpp
c++ != cpp

"gcc" stands for the "gnu compiler collection" and the "gnu C compiler".
the former contains the latter (and probably a bunch of others, like a 
c++ compiler); however, the former is usually not a single program but a 
  collection of programs.

what i _did_ suggest was: google "edora g++"

the 1st hit i get is "Fedora: g++ install problem", the 2nd one is "g++ 
missing! - Linux Forums", the 3rd one is "Please help me to install g++ 
compiler on Fedora 6 - Linux Forums".

ALL of these results tell me one thing: you have to install the package 
"gcc-g++" to get a c++ compiler.

that is:
# yum install gcc-c++

there might be a problem with "g++" being interpreted not literally but 
as a (broken) regular expression. so yum does not find it.
this is either because yum is buggy, or your use of "yum search" is illegal.


PS: probably there are reasons why people stick to debian rather than 
fedora :-)
