    Borlund 5.5 can't find files

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the world of C++, though I know a bit about OOP, having studied Java a while back.

    Anyway, I'm having trouble using Borlund 5.5 to compile programs. I've installed it to C:\Borlund\BCC55, I've created the 2 cfg files as described in the readme, I've set the path to the bin folder, etc. I've set up a shortcut, I click it, it opens up the command line, I can type bcc32 and I get a list of all the possible switches, so I assume that part is working right. When I type bcc32 program_name.cpp at the windows command line, I get "Borlund C++...blah..blah... Error E2914 Could not find file program_name.cpp."

    I have a feeling I'm not saving my files to the correct folder. I've tried different folders, like bin, or lib, or the BCC55 folder, but to no avail. So I guess my question is where should I save my files, or am I possibly doing something else wrong?

    I'd really appreciate any help.

    Don't save your files into the Borland directory tree. Make your own folder somewhere else and then change to that dir in the command line and try it again.


    C:\some folder> cd \

    C:\> mkdir my_src

    C:\my_src> bcc32 my_file.cpp
