    Borland 5.5 compiler help!

    Ive downloaded and installed and created the needed cfg files and added the needed paths.

    In order for it to compile, do I need to save my file in the bin, or what.

    HELP!

    No you don't. Just add the path to your bin directory in your system PATH or type the entire path when you compile, e.g., c:\>c:\borland\bcc32\bin\bcc32.exe your_source.cpp

    thats a bit blurry to me.

    Example.

    I have test.cpp saved in c:/c++/test

    c:/c++/test/test.cpp

    So i would type in the following?


    c:\borland\bcc32\bin\bcc32.exe c:/c++/test/test.cpp

    right. here are some other tips:

    1) add c:\borland\bcc32\bin to the path variable in your autoxec.bat file (you'll need to reboot before it takes effect).
    2) when compiling a file, change the directory to the one the file is in. open the command prompt and type:
    cd c:\c++\test

    now you simply type:

    bcc32 test.cpp

    you can also create a batch file like this in your c:\borland\bcc32\bin directory:

    @echo off
    if exist %1.tds del %1.tds
    if exist %1.obj del %1.obj
    if exist %1.exe del %1.exe
    bcc32 %1.cpp
    %1.exe
    @echo on

    assuming you named it bc.bat you would simply type:

    bc test

    ...it will compile and run the program all in one shot.
    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );
    24bbs.cpp
