    In that case you should ask your instructor for help with the recommended tool.

    it's easier to use that Visual C++ and more user friendly
    I do not think so. I think that all the major IDEs are "easy to use" and "user friendly", to some extent.

    Setting up Code Blocks, with video tutorial. You know, in case you still want it.

    And swgh, I didn't mean to offend. You know, I said "ignore that, you can use whatever you want. Here, take mine, it's better." I was kinda joking, contradicting myself like that. Sorry the joke was at your expense. Just trying to fan a little "VC++ vs C::B" debate.

    Hi, in the dev environment, there seems to be only one option for the compiler. I am currently using "gcc", should i switch to mingw32-gcc? I am using XP still by the way, because vista annoyed me.

    mingw32-gcc is a port (version) of gcc for Windows. cygwin is another, but probably not what you want. Therefore, you are fine.

    as far as your prog question goes, you might try using cstdlib instead of stdlib.h, cstdlib is a c++ library where stdlib.h is not. I dont know if that will help becuase your code worked for me. :/
