Make a hello world program???
std::cout << "Hello World!" << std::endl;
it's std::endl if you don't include the using namespace std;
How would i use a compiler to do this, im an idiot please help.
okay, d/l a compiler, there are a bunch of free ones, like mingw and borland bcc55.
you could also d/l bloodshed dev-c++ which is the easiest to d/l, it comes with mingw.
dev-c++ includes an IDE, so it makes it easier this way.
you could also d/l Quincy from:
You could use both mingw and borland with Quincy 2000, but only mingw with Quincy 2002.
once you have an IDE, and compiler, you will be well on your way.
P.S. read the installation instructions with both compilers if you decide to d/l Quincy or another IDE. D/Ling bloodshed's, just read their site. The instructions are very helpful.
I have dev-c++ thats what ive been using but i still dont get it and im very very confused.
Edit: the help file was so worthless i almost died.
what version of dev-c++?
Tempest1: Read a tutorial.
I have read tutorials... they dont help. I think its dev-c++ 22.214.171.124
go to bloodshed's website, and read how to use the program. Anyways, just write the code, save the file, and then click Execute, Compile. after compiled, run it.
AHHH This is driving me crazy.. i go tabout 72 errors when i tried that.
#include <iostream.h> // for input-output
cout << "\nHello World!" << endl;
>>Problem with programming is you can't make small mistakes.
Especially with C++ where there are no small mistakes, just big ones :-) When I started with C++ I was shocked with how much the compiler complained! It's disheartening.
Still doesnt work lol, this sucks.
