    compiling C++ with NetBeans

    Hi, I'm having problems setting up a working C++ using NetBeans. But some things aren't working, as if it doesn't have the needed libraries.I tried following this guide, but it didn't sort it out:
    c/c++ compiler for NetBeans 6.5 (under Windows)

    Here's screenshots of my PATH settings:

    I need to get this working rather quickly and non of my tinkering has solved the issues I have.

    Do you really want to use Cygwin? I once configured Netbeans to use the MinGW port of g++ by following the "Installing MinGW" instructions given here: Introducing Netbeans C/C++ Pack.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Okay, I followed the steps in that link under the "Installing MinGW". However, I still get errors on statements such as "cout" and "endl". C stuff seems fine, such as "printf".

    I did not understand what it meant when the guide said "You will still have to add the MSys programs folder to the system PATH (in my case, E:\MSys\1.0\bin), as you did for the MinGW base distribution. "

    I only restored default in NetBeans so that it found all the paths itself, but I have a feeling this text might be talking about something I need to do through cmd? (I'm using Windows 7).

    Do you need to use NetBeans specifically? If not and you need to get things working quickly, I can also suggest Code::Blocks with mingw. It isn't big, and should work right out of the box.
    Alternatively there's Visual Studio, but it's rather large.

    I have no idea what is the level of your C++ knowledge, but just to be sure that you are trying to compile something that is supposed to compile, try compiling:
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<string>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
        string s;
        cout << "Please enter your first name followed by a newline\n";
        cin >> s;
        cout << "Hello, " << s << '\n';
        return 0; // this return statement isn't necessary
    }

    *facepalm*

    I was doing C last semester and I've been trying to use #include <stdio.h>, which is of course why printf works and cout doesn't.

    Thanks for sorting me out.

    Heh. Well, there we go.
    I didn't consider you were writing invalid C++ code.
    Well, good it worked out for you. Now, good luck.
