    Heh, I recommend GCC.
    Make sure you get the appropriate build though.
    With certain files like the one I recommended, you have to "impliment" or "culture" into your program. You don't exactly compile it. You "use it's features". You borrow and use it's functions.

    It's the same concept as doing:
    printf("Hello world")
    You didn't make the function print, or create the header stdio.h.
    That was a mouse "library", not a mouse program.

    [EDIT]
    BTW, search this site for compilers. This site has links to the most popular ones, and information on them. If you need detailed docs for the compilers make sure to look for the manual pages...on google

    The linked worked fine for me, both times.

    No, I could not.
    I would post one, if I opted to, but I do not want to.
    That is for you to figure out, or else you'll be robbing yourself of a very important expierence.
    Try things on your own, search around. I will not hold your hand.
    Try things out, post what you've tried, and how you tried solving it.
