I'm a newbie to C and VS.NET so please bear with me. I am an experience programmer in VB, VBA, VBScript, ASP, HTML and a few other things.
Anyway, I'm trying to figure out how to create and compile a C program in VS.NET 2003. I think I figured out how to create a C source code file:
Click File, New, File
Under Categories, select Visual C++, select C++ File, click Open
Click File, Save As, change Save As Type to C Source File and then name and save the file.
At this point, I have a "test.c" file open in VS.NET where I can enter my code, but I can't find a way to compile the source file. I found a command line compiler, but is that the only way? I figured there would be a compile function available within the IDE for this.
1. Did I create a C file correctly?
2. How do I compile within the IDE?
