    please post your complete code. did your compiler come with the C++ libraries/headers?

    i used the default code that came with code::blocks.:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
    	std::cout << "Hello world!" << std::endl;
    	return 0;
    }
    unfortunately im not able to answer the question about the libraries/headers.. i followed the direction on a web site to install the borland compiler and assumed it was correct..

    It seems that the code compiled but failed to link. May-be you haven't set the (correct) path to the compiler's libraries (linker paths).
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
    Quoted more than 1000 times (I hope).

    well the code shouldnt have an error, so its something wrong with either your setup or software (or lack of).

    on the download page for code blocks, there seems to be two downloads:
    Code::Blocks IDE, without compiler
    Filesize: 3,977,959 Bytes | Version: 1.0rc2
    MD5 Hash: 377e430eb6fcbf5566478b49628a5706

    Code::Blocks IDE, with MINGW compiler
    Filesize: 13,597,181 Bytes | Version: 1.0rc2
    MD5 Hash: 7638bdd4fd087b3168be4f0f968d1f3c
    i would download and install the second one with mingw compiler.

    you likely downloaded the one without a compiler, because you want to use a different compiler. if thats the case, you have to do some configuring. whenever i download an ide, i download the compiler that comes with it (if any) so i dont have to do any configuring.

    there are many free and much newer compilers than borland 5.5 (is that ~8 years old?) i would use a new compiler that comes with an ide.

    well doesnt he need to include
    using namespace std;

    then u can just be like
    cout<< "Hello WORLDDDDDDDD" ;
    return 0;
    ?

    or prefix cout and endl with std:: like he has done.

    You can try Visual Studio 2008 Express. IDE & Compiler in one, complete with a debugger and very easy to use.

    Did you follow all the setup instructions for the compiler?
    http://www.cprogramming.com/borland.html

    It seems to me that it can't find any of the standard library stuff.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    i tried the tutorial for setting it up (whcih matched exactly how i set it up earlier. and everything works if compiling from cmd prompt.. but my goal is to use a ide so i don't have to jump back and forth to test out programs..

    There's an alternative setup here which involves adding the BCB directory to the PATH environment variable.

    Or you could try running the IDE from the command prompt you set up for the compiler, rather than double clicking on it.

    Then the IDE will be aware of all the environment variables necessary to run the compiler correctly, when it (the IDE) runs the compiler.

    If that works, then we can work on making it a "smoother" process.
