Pretty simple. I couldn't really find any info on this in your FAQ and in the search.
I've already had ample experience with writing code using a separate program. If any of you have ever heard of the First Robotics Competition, it's the program they distribute that lets you edit and upload code to your robot. But what I don't know is how, exactly, to go from a saved text file to a running program. I know you have to complie it, but I've never had to actually use a compiler directly. And, after it's compiled, how do you run the program?
Also, I have a Borland C++ Compiler on my computer from a few years ago. Would that suffice for a C compiler. I've been told it would, but I just want to make sure.
Thanks a lot.
