    Code::Blocks problem

    I have been using Dev-Cpp compiler and have just switched to Code::Blocks
    My code compiles just fine with Dev-Cpp, but code blocks gives me a "no new line at end of file warning"

    What is that?

    it isnt a problem it is just saying there isnt a newline at the end of your source files. Also, if you have an up to date version of code::blocks, it will add the newline automatically.

    The OP probably took the source file verbatim from Dev-C++ and compiled it with Code::Blocks. I don't think that Dev-C++ automatically adds newlines to the ends of files.

    Something vague in my memory tells me it might even be a requirement from the C++ standard that all source files end with a newline. I have no idea if that is correct, though.

    It's likely, since GCC gives that warning even in ANSI mode. Yep.
    "The ISO C standard, section 5.1.1.2, states that source files must end with
    new lines."

    Not sure about the C++ standard, but it would make sense that it requires it too.
