    quick question on compiling

    borland builder 5.5. I have a question on compiling. I have all the source written out in a .cpp file. I am wondering, what's the best way to compile and run the program? Should I compile and run it at the same time, or create an EXE file and then run that?

    Also, in the builder, when I run the compiler, like this:

    cpp32.exe program.cpp

    will it just compile it, or will it compile it and run it, or will it just compile it and link it automatically?

    Thanks for any advice. I'm a little confused about everything.

    may have figured it out...?

    not sure though. I have a premade test program my teacher made, and I'm trying to run it with bcc32.exe.........

    I keep getting these errors...

    Code:

    Yeah, read the readme file again, and skip down to where it tells you to create a pair of ".cfg" files.
    IIRC, this is also a FAQ question
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
