Alright this is embarrassing..
Basicly I've been writing a project with Dev-Cpp and I've had problems where its saying either variables are out of the scope, or classes are being redefined, or variables dont even exist.
I searched and I need to add commands to the makefile to get access to some library to stop the errors or whatever.. so I figured why not stop using Dev-Cpp's easy mode compiling (which btw I think was screwing me up too with the errors) since I couldnt figure where to add that command to be in the compiling process.
I searched and read like.. 5 or more little tutorials on makefiles, which gave me good info on them and I made various makefiles but none work because I dont know how to compile the makefile. The tutorials neglected to mention anything more than saying "type make".
I've tried running my C:\Dev-Cpp\bin\make.exe file in command prompt, says theres no command or makefile found.. so I try C:\Dev-Cpp\bin\make.exe make -f makefile, nada. I tried Run As.. on the makefile to run make.exe which did do something (said it couldnt find a file or w/e but it did something) but the dos window would disappear instantly.
I have my project .cpp, .cpp, .h, .h and makefile, with no clue how to put it together. (which is odd because I remember being able to do it once)
Any help? please and thank you..
I'm on a windows OS, and am doing this in C++
