    Thumbs up Help? New to C and getting trouble.

    Dear guys..
    i m new to C language and there is alot of difficulties i m facing.even i m not able to compile a simple c programme in MS visual C++ 6 and Boroland C++ 5.02. but i never get out put....fact is that i dont know how to use those compiler...

    When it comes to use dos based Turbo C or C++ then it is not working well in my computer and it just shut down my computer because of alot of heat generation.

    Dont know what to do? help me to find a good compiler and its tutorial. please help.

    Your first action should be to fix the cooling problem with your system. If it can't run Turbo C, it's probably not good to run any other CPU intensive application either.

    Either Borland or Visual Studio should be fairly easy to use, so perhaps you can post some code that you believe should work and we will have a look to see what may be wrong.

    I feel embressed but there is simpe code ....how can i see the output of this file in borolandC++ 5.02.
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    main()
    {
    int p,n;
    float r,si;
    p=1000;
    n=2;
    r=1;
    si=p*n*r/100;
    printf("&#37;d",si);
    }
    Now how can i get the out put ? I m able to compile it in Boroland C++ 5.02 but never got the out put...

    Haven't you tried running the program?

    Incidentally, it may be better to test with something simpler, e.g.,
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        printf("Hello world!");
        return 0;
    }

    si is a float. You should code
    Code:
    printf("&#37;f",si);

    I have to agree with matsp. Your computer needs proper cooling before you should do very much else. I suggest asking technical support (perhaps you've bought a manufacturer warranty?) what to do. They will assist you with that properly.

    When you are done with that, try looking at what microsoft explains about your IDE and see if that helps:

    Add
    #include "stdafx.h"
    at the first line of your source file.

    This depends on your IDE, but typically there would be some shortcut icon to run the program, a shortcut key combination, or some menu option. Alternatively, you can run your console program from a command prompt.

    when written this programme and compile in boroland c++ then i got this error msg
    And you did not get this error message when compiling the program whose code you provided earlier?

    It looks like you should disable precompiled headers.

    You just need to add "#include stdafx.h" to the beginning of your source files. No need to bother going into options and disabling precompiled headers. It's more a hassle than adding a single line of code.

    You just don't know how to actually use the IDE. It's not the IDE's fault. It's your fault.
    Common ways are add "getch()" at the end of of main. Run program with Ctrl+F5. Add a breakpoint at the end of main (F9) and run with F5.
    The last two only works with Visual Studio.

    And if you can, I do suggest you try Visual Studio 2008 Express. VC6 is old, and age is making it bad.

    Unfortunately, precompiled headers are non-standard. You might as well disable precompiled headers, considering that this should be a one time change as well.

    Perhaps your CMD window is flashing up and going away too fast for you to see it.

    Even using PCH, it will still compile fine with other compilers.
    What should be disabled is Microsoft extensions. But unfortunately, their headers are so full of them it's impossible to compile code without them.
