when i compile with borland 5.5 it compiles to
is there a way to have it put what it compiles to
or something or i might just not know what im talking about
you can set whatever output dir you want by using makefiles. If you use a batch file to set the PATH variable and run the makefile gives better flexibility.
Or you can use response files - there's a bunch of info on this in the borland help files, although the makefile info is a bit obscure if you are unfamiliar with it.
If you've appended the path as described in the readme.txt you can compile in any directory. Just put your .cpp file in any directory and run the compiler from there. Then the .exe will be in that directory along with the other compile files.
