    Starting out

    Hey
    I have Borland's C++ Builder 6. I would like to know the easiest way to enter code without using the windows environment? I am just learning C++ so i will be simply entering code and learning the language. Please advise. THolly

    Well if you want enter code from the console, you could use a simple text editor to type your code and save it to a text file (you'd still use the .cpp extension). Then you should be able to call your compiler from the command line and give it certain options. More sepcific instructions on how to do this should have come with your compiler - I've never used Borland C++ Builder since version 1. As for what text editor you can use. There's a code editor included with most IDEs, you could use notepad, or something else of your choice.

    Just as an aside, as a beginner, you're probably actually making things harder for yourself. If you have documentation that teaches you how to use the Borland environment, whether it came with the software or if you find it on the internet, I would recommend you use it.

    Hey
    Builder 6 comes with everything included. I just wanted to know how you open just a window to enter code compile, link and run. The normal procedure creates a regular window's program. I just want to relearn C and C++. Thanks
