I'm new to programming and the C++ tutorials seem very vague at times and I have not found any tutorials that help with Dev-C++, except for one, and its not very detailed either. I also have downloaded the free version of Visual Studio.net 2003 on Microsofts site (totallly legal, not a warez); But I'm not able to find info on how to make it work either.
I can't understand why .cpp files won't compile even when they have supposably been written using Dev-C++. It has something to do with the linkers or liberaries, but I'm very ignorant on how to set those paths and I'm pretty lame in general.
I'd like for somebody to write some tutorials that explain things using less abstract language, or skimming over details that are critical to the process.
I have spent many hours searching for tutorials to piece things togeather, but its all a challenge when you must work all day in labor and come home sleepy .
If somebody has the time to help someway, I'd appreciate the help.
p.s I also fregient the local library for books, and they seem to be real, hmm, long winded and confusing. the "for dummies" books don't always produce working programs either. Guess I may be too much of a dummie.
