    Unhappy

    Zomg, there's so many things to download in http://www.codeblocks.org/downloads.shtml . So which exactly should i download to start out with? And do i need to download Code::Blocks IDE, without compiler or Code::Blocks IDE, with MINGW compiler??

    They said that: A bug has just been discovered in 1.0RC2 regarding the SVN plugin.
    If you don't have the SVN versioning system installed on your machine, DO NOT install the SVN plugin, or Code::Blocks may crash. So what exactly is SVN versioning system and how do i know if my system have this programme?

    They also have Code::Blocks IDE (Linux binaries and source RPM's). But they also added this: (Disclaimer: The Linux binaries are NOT official distributions - they're packages created by our users, located in our forums, so they're not guaranteed to work. But they will probably do.) So do i need to download this?

    They have this as well: Code::Blocks Sources. It has .tgz format, Source .rpm and .spec file. One again, which do i need to download? Or shall i download them all the Code::Blocks Sources?

    They have this too: Code::Blocks Development SDK. It says:For developing your own plugins, then there's the .tgz format. Do i need to download this too?

    Lastly, there's MinGW Sources. Do i need to download em too?

    Plus, there's Add-ons
    Code::Blocks plugins, templates, and anything that helps you improve your programming experience. However, there's no files for the Third-party Plugins
    and the Project Templates. What are these anyway?

    Once again, i thank u guys for helpnig me out. I know i'm really a noob =\
    I really do appreciate u guys for helpnig me out. Thanks~~~

    Subversion (SVN) is a version control system. You probably do not have it installed, so do not install the plugin until you install it.

    Since you are using Windows, ignore the Linux downloads. Download a nightly build for Windows.

    You probably want this one.

    Actually you don't want that at all. You want one of the nightly builds. They're pretty stable as far as I can tell and more up-to-date.

    So I should just download this compiler from this website? Is that enough? If it is, then i'll download it immediately and start learning C++ right away

    Grab and extract these files into the same directory.

    http://prdownload.berlios.de/codeblo...v3989_win32.7z
    http://prdownload.berlios.de/codeblo...cc_cb_wx284.7z
    http://prdownload.berlios.de/codeblocks/mingwm10.7z

    Also don't right-click these links. Browse to them as they lead to a site where you choose a mirror.

    You had chosen Dev 5, you would have been coding already.

    As far as Code::Blocks, I use it off and on, but I downloaded the last 'stable' version and have no desire to spend my limited free time beta testing (nightly builds).

    Those builds aren't really buggy. At least not any more buggy than Dev-C++ 5 which is in itself a beta as well. :P

    Oh right sorry. I forgot to mention you need the 7-Zip archival tool to decompress them. I keep assuming everyone has a copy.

    Also do you have a compiler installed? If not, just grab [url=http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/MinGW-5.1.3.exe?modtime=1168794334&big_mirror=1]MinGW[/ur] and have it install to c:\mingw. That's the location that CodeBlocks defaults to looking for it.

    Ah, 2 weeks of holiday, now i'm back xD
    Ok, back to serious matter. I've downloaded the compiler that is being metioned by Frobozz. I'm still confused, what's a compiler? Isn't CODE::BLOCK a compiler already? And after i downloaded the compiler being mentioned by Frobozz, i can't seemed to find where's the tools to run. Can anyone help me please? Thanks. Oh, and by the way, i tried to read a C++ programming book, called Learn C++ From grounds up. It doesn't seemed helpful at all because its like only for applicable for window 95 =\

    Code::Blocks is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment). I was under the impression that it came with a compiler already.

    You should learn from a good book. See the C++ Book recommendations thread stickied to the top of the forum or do a search. I'd recommend You Can Do It! by Francis Glassborrow if you can find it.
