Which Compiler should I use?
Hi. I'm just beginning to learn C and C++. So far its going good. I'm trying to learn for as cheaply as possible. I am teaching myself. I have Bloodshed's compiler but I eventually want to be able to make 2D and 3D games and I heard that is hard to do on Bloodshed's. I heard Microsoft Visual C++ is the best. I don't want to spend 6 months learning on Bloodshed only to get good enough to make a game and discover that I can't do it on Bloodshed.
Someone please tell me what this Microsoft Visual Studio is and what Microsoft Visual C++ is and what the differences are. What is the latest version of Microsoft's compiler.
Just want to be able to use DirectX later on when I get good.
I'm finished with bloodshed
I think I'm done with bloodshed. Too many wierd errors that weren't even errors. I tried to compile a game that I knew was perfect because I copied it from an instructional cd and it wouldn't compile so I opened it in MSVC and had no problems whatsoever.
I don't think bloodshed tells you exactly what the problem is when there is an error but MSVC does.
