    Unhappy newbie question *blush*

    Hello there. I have a little problem.

    I just want to setup something, WHATEVER, to start tinkering with c++ on my comp, I've already dabbled in C and PHP, I don't know ........ about programming but have fun tinkering with it.

    My problem is:

    Yeah, there are a lot of tutorials. That's good. But I get lost with them! I've finally managed to download bloodshed and the template code gives me errors... I can find

    I'm windows XP, is anyone kind enough to point me in some direction? Any advice will be appreciated.

    What errors?

    Are you trying to build a Windows project or a console (command prompt) application?

    For windows apps, I can foresee that you may need additional components (such as the Windows Platform SDK - Now called Windows SDK, formerly Platform SDK).

    Edit: Start simple. Create an EMPTY project that is "console application", add a new file "Hello.c", then copy in this code:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
       printf("Hello, World\n");
       return 0;
    }
    If it doesn't compile, please post errors here.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    I used what you posted and doesn't compile, says the following:

    [Linker error] undefined reference to `__cpu_features_init'

    Seems like you are missing some startup code. Are you sure you installed everything as it should?
