    Dev-C++

    I'm trying to learn how to code Windows C++ programs, and since I have no money for a professional IDE I'm using Dev-C++. Only problem is I can't find any documentation on how to use the resource creater/editor.

    Are there any tutorials or anything I could use. I don't have any experience in Windows programming so I really don't know where to start.

    Any halp would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks

    The resource editor in Dev C++ sucks. Get ahh.... what was its name.....i think it was lcc-win32 or something.
    Dunno about the tutorials.
    Check sunlights site: www.sunlightd.com for a small one.

    I'm still trying to find out what resource files are for. I've been using Dev-C++ for some time, but I never found out what they're good for.

    It's WeditRes, and it's available here.

    They are used to create the UI.
    OS: Linux Mandrake 9.0
    Compiler: gcc-3.2
    Languages: C, C++, Java

    If you go flying back through time and you see somebody else flying forward into the future, it's probably best to avoid eye contact.

    lcc-win32!!! even though the compiler is only C, the resource editor is great, looks a bit like VB ...
