    Creating a .cfg file for Borland C++ 5.5 Command line compiler

    I want to create a .cfg file for Borland C++ 5.5 Command line compiler. However, whenever i try to make it using notepad it doesn't work because notepad always adds .txt to the file. So it ends up being called bcc32.cfg.txt, rather than bcc32.cfg I think this is why the compiler is not recognising it. How can i get rid og the .txt bit?

    Thanks

    Either save the file with the proper extension as 'any file' or, once the file is created, highlight it in explorer, press F2 and rename the file.

    "bcc32.cfg"

    Put qoutation marks on either side of the filename before saving.
