First this is a really great site. I'm just starting in programming and the articles for beginners are very helpful. Which brings me to my question. I was practicing the multiplication function example from the C tutorial and created more programs to practice functions using addition, subtraction, etc.
Well, I named my first program (the multiplication one) "function practice.c". The next three programs I named "function practice addition.c", etc. Whenever I hit the "compilie and run" button in Dev-C++ (from bloodshed) for any of the programs it would only run the multiplication program. I tried closing the multiplication program, restarting Dev-C++, and restarting the computer (thinking maybe a memory issue...told you I was just starting!)
Finally, I renamed my initial multiplication program to "function practice multiplication" and that solved the issue. I guess my question is, why did the name of my program matter?
I use Dev-C++ on Vista.
