    It has nothing to do with being a "newbie". It has to do with being a newbie who is too lazy to read the manual that came with the compiler.

    Sorensen is helpful to a lot of people around here. You just have to be willing to work a little if you want help.

    I don't use Dev but check the directories listed in Dev. maybe that's the problem. it happened to me when I first installed Borland but didn't make the .cfg files... silly me.
    think only with code.
    write only with source.

    The problem was that he was manually saving it as a *.h file instead of a *.cpp file and trying to compile the *.h file.

    guess that's what happens when I don't pay attention.
    think only with code.
    write only with source.

    ...

    Congratulations, you've fallen at the first hurdle.
    Unregistered just asked for some help... and all he gets is rude replies? That doesn't sound very helpful. Do you think laughing at him is really going to acheive anything? You act as if when you first attempted programming you didn't make at least a few mistakes.

    Read my replies, Spit. When did I ever laugh at, make fun of or was rude to the Unregistered poster? Nobody ever said we didn't make mistakes at first either. But I will tell you that I at least RTFM before I tried to write my first program.

    Um

    Actually I wasn't really replying to your post. You might not have said you didn't make mistakes when you first started but Sorensen sure did act like it.
