So ive been writing my source in notepad... is there a lil compiler i could download for free? somthing that works good and not cheap and crappy :). I dunno much about libraries... do i download those separate or sumting? what r they or their purpose.. remember... im a newbie , i just started with this programming less than 2 hours ago.
