    Unhappy Compiler not Functioning

    Hello

    I wanted to learn the C & C++ languages. I downloaded the Bloodshed compiler. When I start the program up I get an error message stating the GNU make file is not in the path.

    ---------------------------
    Confirm
    ---------------------------
    There doesn't seem to be GNU Make file in PATH or in Dev-C++'s Bin path. Please make sure that you have GNU Make and adjust Bin setting or system PATH environment variable and that make setting in Compiler Option contains correct filename, otherwise you will not be able to compile anything.
    ---------------------------
    OK

    I have researched this problem but being new to the hole system and language I have not been able to resolve this error.

    Is the compiler installed correctly or do I have to modify settings to correct this problem?

    Did you download the "small" package or the "large" package?
    Because the small one is the IDE only, and does NOT include a compiler.

    BTW, bloodshed is dead, and the apparent successor is code::blocks
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    What's the difference if I may ask ?

    > What's the difference if I may ask ?
    One is an apple half-eaten and discarded on the ground, and the other is ripening nicely on the tree.

    What sort of differences did you have in mind?

    One thing is common, they both use the MinGW port of GCC as the compiler.
    The rest is just UI fluff.
