    Unhappy Sending Files with Email using dev C++ (help).

    Dear forum.
    I were making a dev C++ program which allows to send to someone specific file. But the code all was wrong.

    Could I get help from some one who knows dev C++ better.

    DevC++ is an Integrated Development Enviroment (IDE). Has almost nothing to do with your code.

    Only that dev-c++ hasn't been maintained in the last decade (the last supported OS was win2K), so running it on XP/Vista/Win7/Win8/...... (I'm getting that TurboC obsolescent feeling again) is going to be increasingly unlikely and frustrating.

    Pick something recent.
    Visual Studio Express 2012 Products | Microsoft Visual Studio
    smorgasbordet - Pelles C
    Code::Blocks
    Orwell Dev-C++ | Free Development software downloads at SourceForge.net (this is an updated fork of the original dev-c++, so you might like this the most)

    If you can find a library which does it all for you, then it will be easy.

    If you want to do all the work yourself, you need to read this -> http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2821.txt
    and get yourself settled in for a good month of coding.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    There's always MinGW which includes the useful `make' utility. It's not so bad. For simple projects I start with a batch file like this

    makeit.bat:
    Code:
    @echo off
    call "%userprofile%\bin\env-mingw.bat"
    make main run
    pause
    Then I can build either by double clicking or by typing `make run' at the command prompt

    Another trick is

    Code:
    subst p: "C:\Path\To\Some\Project\Directory"
    Then Windows will assign P: to your project directory. This overcomes some of the limitations of the Windows command prompt.

    Or you can use an IDE which typically have syntax highlighting, code completion and compiling with the press of a single button.
    Seems like a better way to do coding.

    It'd be better to just install MinGW with MSYS, which comes with a shell that gives you a sane if minimalistic *nix environment to work in.

    Or you could just partition your HDD and install Ubuntu or Linux mint alongside windows and learn to code on there. Espeacially since all those tools are already on there.

    Madness! (That'd work, too.)

    I love how this kid just dumped the problem on us, and then ran away when the answer wasn't presented right away.
