    How do I add .C Project to my complier?

    Someone gave me instructions on how to compile. Part of the instructions are make a Project File and a .C project. How do I add .C

    The complier I am using is Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition

    Use a win32 console project and when adding new files, add a .c extension instead of .cpp.
    Then it's just the normal way of compiling. Typical F7 shortcut.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    I am not understanding. I did click on Win32. It wants a filename and everything else. I don't even see where I add the .c extension. F7 for what?

    It means you add .c after the filename.
    Like "my super cool file.c", instead of "my super cool file".
    F7 is the shortcut for building your solution.

    In the future, you should use code tags: [code]my code[/code].
    The problem is due to that you're using implicit main. Add "int" before main and it will compile.
    Btw, it would be better if you put printf on a line below the first {.

    1.) I am not good at using forum functions. I don't know how to use code tags. Just one day I showed up at forums not knowing anything. Even with quoting, I don't know how to separate quotes either.

    2.) It failed again.


    #include <stdio.h>

    "int"main()
    {
    printf("hello, world\n");
    {

    Have you ever studied a C book at all?
    I didn't mean you to include the quotes.
    Code:
    int main()
    {
        printf("Hello world!\n");
    }
    You may not realize, but if you don't use code tags, your code will look messed up in the forum.
    There a symbol that looks like #. Select your code, then select that button and it will look right.
