    First, follow the instructions in the 'readme' file that is in the installation directory you put the compiler in. Use a text editor such as Notepad to make & edit the two cfg files named in the readme.

    Go here for a good intro:

    Go here for some simple windows examples using response & makefiles:

    Good luck.

    Hi!

    Did you change the search-path to include the bin-directory of the compiler? (type "bcc32" at the command line; if dos complains about not finding the command, then you should change autoexec.bat as indicated in the readme file (add a line like "PATH c:\borlandc\bin;%PATH%" somewhere). Then execute this file or reboot.

    If you try to compile a program and it complains about not finding header files, then you did something wrong with you cfg-files.

    hope this help

    Try using dev-c++
    Its a little/very buggy but its got a good overall performance
    I think the site might be down but it should be up in a copple of days
    bloodshed.net
    its easer that Borland but doesn't have as many options.
    Try to help all less knowledgeable than yourself, within
    the limits provided by time, complexity and tolerance.
