    Umm... no. You actually write your code in the compiler. The compiler just has a function that will "compile" the code you wrote and link that with the libraries you want to include and any extra files you want into an executable.

    Only use a text editor to write your code if a compiler is not available to you. You will appreciate the syntax coloring in most compilers.

    Only if it's an IDE. There's nothing wrong with writing the code in Notepad, saving it as a .cpp or .c, and compiling the file.

    That said, do yourself a favor and use an IDE. I think it was pointed out earlier, but Dev-C++ is a good one.

    i live in the uk and i'm 14 now. I started learning programming at 12. I started with something easy with html and javascript. Once i felt really confident about web design and web programming at 13, when i could encorporate some php and make pretty good website design i moved onto c++. Then once i was fairly good at that i moved onto the win api, which i think i'll stick with for a while, until i get really good at it, then i might move onto some easier languages like css, and complete dhtml.
    I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    Just grabbed Dev-C++, it seems like a fairly easy to use program (I hope!) Not to say the language is!

    When you have written a code, and you "compile" it, does it turn it into an exectuable?
    And to dispell any misconceptions, I'm form the UK, and speak the "Queen's english" ;-), though not quite like that toffee-nosed grandma!

    Thanks for all the help, it seems that coders are one helpful bunch of people!

    It's a little more complicated than that, but that's the basic idea. Any decent book or tutorial should explain it more in depth.

    Pip pip, cheerio, and all that rot?
