    building source files?


    I am really new to programming in general and I just downloaded 3 source files, here is a snippet of the readme:

    1. Extract the source code of RainbowCrack 1.2 to some directory
    2. Overwrite the files (HashAlgorithm.h HashAlgorithm.cpp HashRoutine.cpp) with the ones in this package
    3. Build the source
    Baisically I have no idea how to compile mutiple source files, I use Dev-Cpp so I tried a project but I just got lost and I found nothing on google or after searching the forums.

    Create a project, add the source files to the project, then build the project.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
