A little bi of help if it's ok...
Hello everyone. I'm new and i'm trying to figure out which one i click on the compiler Digital mars. ( i think that's what it's called) There are a bunch of programs on it and i clicked the one named Men. Is that the right one to click? Also, how can you test your programming with this program.. :o thank you everyone.
Some comments and suggestions.
Sorry, I don't use Digital Mars so I can't answer your question directly.
Don't give-up an a particular compiler too easily. I've used several different compilers (mostly obscure C compilers), and they have never worked as expected on the first try. It always takes (at least) a few hours to get a compiler installed and configured, and to learn how to use it. And, the documentation that comes with compilers seems to be written for experienced programmers. You don't get step-by-step instructions how to make a "Hello World" program.
I have actually read some positive things about Digitial Mars, but I can't remember exactly what I read. If you can't get it working in a half-day or so, or you decide to try a different compiler, I'd recommend trying something more popular. It's always good to start-out with a popular compiler, so that you can find someone to help you. The Bloodshed Dev-C++ package recommended by sean_mackrory is quite popular. Borland also has a very popular free compiler, but it is a command-line compiler-only. (It's not a Windows GUI program, and it doesn't come with an editor.) There is a good list of free compilers at TheFreeCountry.com. Of course, the most popular compiler/IDE of all is Microsoft Visual C++ (which is what I use most of the time).
If your budget is limited, start-out with a free compiler, and spend your money on books!
