    Missing header files and libraries with Borland

    I just downloaded and installed the free compiler from Borland. When I try to compile any program, I get errors including any standard header file (for example iostream>. I searched and found no .h files installed. The .lib files also did not install. Where can I get the includes and lib files ?

    To get everything up and running, I copied the include files and libs from an old borland c++5.02 CD, but would like to have the correct includes and libs.

    Any help appreciated!

    On the borland website under downloads, c++ builder there is an option to download the compiler http://www.borland.com/products/down..._cbuilder.html
    It is the bcc5.5 compiler

    The download was just one executable (freecommandlinetools.exe) and did not have a readme file. It just extracted files into the c:\borland\bcc55\bin directory.

    When I downloaded it it said it was 8727KB (In mozilla download manager it says that it downloaded 8727KB), but when the download was finished the executable is only 2438KB.

    Maybe there was a problem with the download ?

    Yes it happens with Mozilla. Happened to me while I was downloading Opera browser.

    If connection to the net is not proper or due to some bug in Mozilla (not sure) it downloads some part and says that it has downloaded full thing.

    Though such things happen rarely only.

    But use some external download manager to download such big files. Like Downloader for X. There you won't have risk of getting corrupted downloads.

    That Borland Command line tools are something 8 or 8.5 MB. And you have to make two configuration files.

    bcc32.cfg -> Containing path to your include files.

    ilink32.cfg -> Containing path to your library files.

    How to set them up is mentioned in the Readme files.

    And one more thing I would like to know.

    Are you using Mozilla under Windows or
    Borland's command line tools are available for linux also.

    I am not sure about the second thing.
