    Question PFE (prorgammers file editor, for Windows)

    Hi! I have downloaded what seemed to be a great editor, PFE, Programmers File Editor! The main reason I downloaded it was because one can compile a file specifiyng a command to be executed!

    Note tha my
    OS is Windows XP Pro,
    Compiler is Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32
    Editor is PFE (programmers file editor)

    My problem is that I get a strange error message:
    -----------------------------------------
    > C:\Borland\BCC55\Bin\bcc32.exe C:\dev\test.cpp

    Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32 Copyright (c) 1993, 2000 Borland

    *** 7 errors in Compile ***
    -----------------------------------------

    What I believe is strange is that the compiler complaints about a file named PFE96.BAT

    The file I'm trying to compile is test.cpp
    -----------------------------------------
    #include <stdio.h>

    void main()
    {
    printf("hej");

    }
    -----------------------------------------

    Which works fine if I compile it by typing the command in the "command prompt" in Windows XP!

    Anyone who can help me about this or have any idea of what is going wrong?

    Best Regards
    Rickard

    I used PFE a while, but currently I'm using ConTEXT, which is much greater. It also uses colors and supports many languages and custom languages. Connecting compilers and assemblers to it is also very easy.

    What is PFE96.BAT? I looked into my directory of PFE, but couldn't find that file. Maybe it is a script which tells how to compile the file, could be errors in that script.

    >*** 7 errors in Compile ***

    Seems it is a compilation error, in other words: an error given by the Borland C++ compiler. So I think it is not a PFE problem.
