I'm trying to teach myself C (NOT C++ yet) but I'm having trouble with my Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0. I want to try writing some simple programs but I can't find any information online about how to create a C project in Visual C++ 6.0. All I see are C++ projects!
So far, all I've been able to accomplish are small apps from the command line using notepad, as well as some partially successful attempts in Eclipse Helios CDT. I also downloaded the free trial of the newer version Visual Studio 2010 Express to see if that would work better.... I can create a project & "name" it with a .c but it always ends up .cpp anway.
6.0 won't even let me create a project... I keep getting this error: "The name specified is not a valid name for a project" when I try to add .c
Sorry if this is a vague question... but once I can actually start coding in Visual 6.0, then I'm sure I'll have more programming inquiries
Thanks in advance,
