    Compiling multiple files

    I just downloaded the source code to Quake, and when I opened it up, there were more than 600 files! How am I supposed to compile all this?

    You must be a little familiar with your compiler's workspace.
    A compiler compile's multiple sources and links them together
    at linking time.

    Yes; I'm using Dev-C++ 4.

    I highly doubt the unmodified source is going to work with Dev C++.

    Actually, I believe Quake was written with DJGPP. This site agrees with me.
