    Problem with Borland 5.5

    Hello everyone! I ran into a problem using Borland 5.5 to compile. I get this error message when attempting to compile a simple test program.

    C:\Borland\BCC55\Bin>bcc32 C:\#PROJE~1\#C\test.cpp
    Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32 Copyright (c) 1993, 2000 Borland
    C:\#PROJE~1\#C\test.cpp:
    Error E2040 C:\#PROJE~1\#C\test.cpp 1: Declaration terminated incorrectly
    *** 1 errors in Compile ***

    C:\Borland\BCC55\Bin>bcc32 test.cpp
    Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32 Copyright (c) 1993, 2000 Borland
    test.cpp:
    Error E2040 test.cpp 1: Declaration terminated incorrectly
    *** 1 errors in Compile ***

    I know the compiler probably simply isn't set up correctly. I have only installed from the exe. I have tried the process listed at cprogramming.com to create some .cfg files but i get the same error with or without using them. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance and happy programming!

    Oops/

    Ok it seems I posted that a bit premature, I fixed my problem. However, now, is there a way to change the directory to where the compiled files go? Bin will get pretty messy =)

    Why are you compiling in the bin directory?

    cd to
    C:\#PROJE~1\#C
    (where presumably your source code is located)
    and compile from there.
