I am new to the site as well as new to programming.
I had been using Borlands compiler to write my source code from the console, and came accross the Bloodshed C++ compiler which to me has a much nicer interface, AND allows me to write my source in Windows.
I can run my source in a console ok with the Dev Compiler, but when I try to run my very basic source code in Windows, the first page of my "Project" is some VERY advanced code that is far above my head right now. From what I understand (and again I'm a novice), this "main.cpp" file has to do with the Windows API so I'm at a loss on where to start with my simple code.
I love working in Windows as opposed to the black console...
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it... I have been SCOURING the Internet and apparently I'm the only person on the planet that can't use this compiler.
