    Unhappy SICK SaD NEWBIE HERE

    I must be a *bleeping* newb cuz Im following the tutorial on this site and I dont think i even have the right programs! Alls i got is borland 5.5 i just wanna make a simple program right now like in the tutorial:

    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    cout<<"Potatos will rule the world YOU CANT ECSCAPE!" ;
    return 0 ;
    }

    So ANY help would be greatly appreciated!

    Oh and you SHOULD help because if you do then you'll feel all big and bad cuz you helped a newb and you will rule so just help.

    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    cout<<"YES, POTATOS WILL STILL DESTROY YOU WITH THEIR SUPER ELECTRIC GRILLMONSTER!" ;
    return 0 ;
    }

    and saved it as hello.rc. but i dont now how to make it run like an actual program!

    you should have saved it as a .cpp file not a .rc (.rc is a resource file).

    it should compile fine.

    I prefer MS Visual C++.. but it doesn't really matter.. whatever you are used to is fine.

    Wow, thanks a lot. DEV is MUCH easier to use than Borland.

    If you get into any assembler in Dev-C++ you will have problems. Also, some interupts won't work. I would suggest DJGPP, but it is just like Borland's IDE, unless you find a better one then RHIDE or Emacs.

    That stinks. Why do all the good compilers have to cost big $$.

    I wish I could get Visual C++ for cheap, but just for the learning edition it costs $100.
