    Compile (windows app n00b)

    I would like to know how to turn a C source code into a windows graphical application. Im using Devcpp, but VB could also do....

    If you have any links to good tutorials or if you don't mind giving it a try, so i could examine the structure..

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main()
            int user_input = 1;
            int loop_count = -1;//starts with -1 because the exit input (final input) is ignored in the count
            float sum = -1;
            printf("\nThe program calculates the average of scores you enter.\n");
            printf("End with a negative integer.\n");
                    printf("Enter score (3-10): ");
                    sum += user_input;//used to determine the sum for the average
            while(scanf("%d", &user_input)>=0);
            printf("\nYou entered %d scores.\n", loop_count);
            printf("Average score: %.2f\n", sum/loop_count);
            return 0;

    GUI programming is not trivial -- that code as a GUI will be 5-10 times as long as it is now.

    To learn how to program for the windows native GUI, start googling "winapi GUI"
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
