Throw me a bone...
im new to C++ and new to programming.
Im using the Dev Compiler v4.1
Could someone plz explain this:
when i create a project, it makes me save
then when i compile, i have to save again!
Next: I try typing in the "hello world program." Doesnt work, i get this strange error message. So then i cut and plaste the little "hello world program."
Then the thing says "Why do u want to compile an empty project."
Im really confused, if this is the easiest compiler to work with then im really in for it:(
When you want to write programs, you need to:
1. create a new project
2. then save the project
3. then create a source file
4. then save that
5. then you need to add to source file(.cpp) to the project
6. then and only then may you compile the code
Many programs you make won't necessitate a project to be made. Just open a new cpp files, write your code and compile. You only need projects for linking (i use the word "need" loosely).
Also, master, with devc++4, you need a project to assign icons... :D
