    Need help with borland NOW PLS!

    i downloaded borland and i think i have it going but i dont know how to compile or debug or start it w/o debug etc etc. we use msvs.net at school so i have no idea what i am doing on borland. i have all the cpp files ready from school but how do i execute the c++ file on borland?

    i mean i know that i go to edit and stuff and i am supposed to be in c:\borland\bcc55\bin and type in myfile.cpp but then all it does is just show me the codes in c++ that i wrote and not the actual program. what am i doing wrong?

    Borland's command-line compiler doesn't have all the pretty little visual aspects you're used to with MSVC. To compile with it, you use:

    bcc32 myfile.cpp

    As long as you are in the directory that contains "myfile.cpp" and your PATH includes "c:\borland\bcc55\bin\" then that's all that's needed to compile with borland.

    ok this is what i did.....
    >> open c:\borland\bcc55\bin
    >>run typed 'command' --->> enter
    >>typed cd c:\borland\bcc55\bin --->>enter
    >>typed edit

    came to a blue screen
    >>typed 'bcc32.cfg'
    >>saved it as 'bcc32.cfg'

    >>typed 'ilink32.cfg'
    >>saved it as 'ilink32.cfg'

    made sure they were created in the borland\bcc55\bin folder

    went back to the blue screen and opened a cpp file created from school

    the file came up and i saw my codes

    now i want to know how to build it from here and compile it and run the program file

    HOW DO I DO THIS?

    thanks.

    Did you read all of my first post? You can not compile your program from the "blue screen" - which is the DOS/console edit.com text editor. That is just a text editor, not a compiler. You create/modify your *.cpp file there. To compile it you exit that and get back to the DOS/console prompt. Then you type:

    bcc32 myfile.cpp

    Where "myfile.cpp" is the name of your source file. You need to do this from the directory that your source file is in and if it's not in the c:\borland\bcc55\bin\ directory then that path needs to be in your PATH statement in your autoexec.bat. BTW, I don't recommend putting your source files in that directory, but they own project-specific directories, just to make your life easier later on.
