Ive found when i open up a brand new project, the main area of the screen where I would be typing code is completely blank. From there I have two options I know of:
1) go to the management tab on the side, and under projects open up the file "main.cpp" which opens up a "Hello World" program. I could delete that and then write whatever I want every time I want to program anything.
2) I go to File->New->empty file which gives me a blank slate, but when I try to "#include <iostream>" it tells me "fatal error: iostream: no such file or directory"
is there any way for me to open any new projects without this happening?
even better, is there another, simpler c++ program i can use instead? Im using Code::Blocks because the "Jump into C++" book suggested it but I dont think the usefulness of the book is dependent on whether or not I use Code::Blocks...
