    Rookie in need of some compiler startup help

    Ok, I've been battling with this for 2 days now. I'm using UltraEdit and Borland's free compiler. I'm new to all this. I've been trying to compile this simple template:

    Code:
    // C++ code template
    #include <iostream.h>
    void main()
    	{
    	  // code goes here!!!
    	}
    I continue getting errors in my command window. I created the correct files in bin directory, but I am clueless. Right now I am getting Error E2133. And the error says "Unable to execute command 'ilink32.exe'"

    Hopefully I provide enough info for someone to help me. Thanks for your time.

    Do you need to set the path to the linker? Do you have ilink32.exe?

    Use <iostream>, not <iostream.h>.

    main returns int.

    Did you properly configure the command line tools?

    yes, ilink32.exe is in the bin folder but for some reason it is not being executed. Any suggestions?

    You just click on the link with the words 'configure the command line tools' cunningly concealed in plain view in my post above and follow the instructions.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks a lot. I figured the problem out. I just started over at the beginning. I think I had the path directory wrong. Anyways, thanks a ton
