hey guys- GNU C++ is the compiler i am having trouble getting up and running. the cd-rom came packaged with "C++ For Dummies," and im following the directions but..directions:
*to install the GNU C++ compiler and RHIDE editor onto your computer, copy the DJGPP folder.
i did that
*with the DJGPP folder copied to your hard drive, open notepad and click File>Open and select c:\AUTOEXEC.BAT.
*add the following two lines to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. (NOTE: if the file AUTOEXEC.BAT does not exist, then the aforementioned steps creates it).
lines im supposed to add: set PATH=%PATH%;C:\DJGPP\BIN
* save file and reboot
ok, i opened notepad, but there was no c:\AUTOEXEC.BAT. i pressed something ( i cant remember what) and:
*C:\>SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 T4 showed up, so underneath it i typed:
like the directions said. i saved the file, exited, went to the C drive and opened it up. it looked like this:
*C:\>SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 T4
it seems ok, although when i strike a key, it wont allow me to advance; i must exit. from there, i am LOST. i hope i didnt lose anyone, because i really need some help. this compiler has to get up if i want to start learning C++. c'mon i know you guys can help me! please! thanks!
