    Help with Borland C++ 5.5

    For the install it says

    Installing and running the Command Line Tools
    -----------------------------------------------

    1. Run freecommandlinetools.exe; choose the
    drive and folder into which you want to
    install the free C++Builder 5 command line
    tool development system.

    2. From the bin directory of your installation:
    a. Add "c:\Borland\Bcc55"
    to the existing path
    b. Create a bcc32.cfg file which will set
    the compiler options for the Include
    and Lib paths (-I and -L switches to
    compiler) by adding these lines:
    -I"c:\Borland\Bcc55\include"
    -L"c:\Borland\Bcc55\lib"
    c. Create an ilink32.cfg file which will set
    the linker option for the Lib path by
    adding this line:
    -L"c:\Borland\Bcc55\lib"
    -------------------------------------------------

    what does it all mean?? and can someone explain it in plain english?

    yeah, i also had problems understanding all that stuff in the beginning...
    I don't, know about version 5.5, but here is a discription of what I did when I installed BC++ 5.1:


    1. I put all the files into C:\Cpp\
    2. Then I created a file called "bcc32.cfg" in C:\Cpp\bin\. Edited it with Notepad and added following two lines:

    -I"C:\Cpp\include"
    -L"C:\Cpp\lib"

    3. Created a file called "ilink32.cfg" in the same directory, added the following line to it with Notepad:

    -L"C:\Cpp\lib"

    That's all.

    Hope this will help

    Try looking harder
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
