    Their other thread was closed for being a crap thread - this one is somewhat better.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Unless you are using Dev-C++ in Win-XP, you are beating a dead horse.
    Dev-C++ 4.9.9.2 is nearly six (6) years old and without updates or bug fixes during that time.
    In 2005, the developer abandoned further work on the Bloodshed project.
    In 2005, Dev-C++ worked (with caveats (known bugs and issues)) on XP and prior.
    Dev-C++ has known installation and linker problems with Vista and may not work on Win-7 at all, (to my knowledge).
    Considerable discussion has taken place at the Dev-C++ forum regarding the problems.
    Today, very few people use Dev-C++ for these reasons.

    A better choice for a C++ compiler would be MinGW with Code::Blocks.
