I have written Win32 programs Notepad, and compiled each program with MinGW. Success!!!! However, I, now, want to use directx. How do I setup a C/C++ project in Notepad++, as well as link the directx dll's and libs to this project. Coding this way, I don't have makefile capabilities, and the ability to include the "dependencies" needed to execute/utilize directx within my Win32 application.
Can any of the C/C++, Win32, MinGW, or Notepad++ guru's assist me with my issue.
By the way, I don't want to use IDE's. I feel like I can learn more by doing most programming in text editors. Please help me to accomplish this.
