    Help in C

    mmm..
    i wanted to start working on C
    so i bought a C advanced book because i already worked on C++ and C#
    now..
    i have to use windows because this computer belongs to everyone in my family.
    my book works with interrupts.
    so after lots of searches, i found a compiler named djgpp.
    but then i wanted to use sockets, but i somehow i couldn't
    so i downloaded 'libsocket'
    which didn't worked nither!
    is there a solution to my problems?
    or should i just give up?

    It's a command line compiler (like DJGPP), but its also a true win32 console compiler, so it also has access to the win32 API, including sockets (in the form of winsock)

    You can get more links to compilers here

    mmm..
    i'm guessing u mean
    C++BUILDER COMMAND LINE
    but it doesn't enables interrupts.

    Using interrupts means using DOS

    Using sockets means using win32

    The two are not compatible
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    What does that mean?

    i can't use sockets and dos in the same program?.....
    i guess that means i have no options but starting building windows programs..

    Some people beg to differ.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
