Thread: Lesson1

  1. #1


    Hello, I just found this site yesterday and its a good thing I din't post then cause there would of been alot of Woohoos and Heehaws.I was realy excited and still am this morning. *\Stayed up till 3:30 having fun/* Been wanting to learn programing for a number of years now. So thanks alot for putting up this site and i will try hard to be a good student. On to my 1st problem.

    I think we should learn the pause command right in lesson 1, so we can admire and study the finished work.

    I found this pause tip in the faqs and I try to omite line saying "press button"

    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <conio.h> //for "getch()"

    int main()
    cout<<"I am learnig c++ \n";
    cout<<"I am using Dev-c++ to compile \n";
    cout<<"ok, ok... Hello World!\n";
    return 0;

    I get a mistake at line 9 (implicit declaration of function `int getchar(...)'
    Are we mixing c & c++ (cause of printf instead of cout) just guessing.
    Greatly appreciate your help

    Post I know why..

    I have Dev-C++ 4.01. I tried conio.h when I wast starting out, but got the same error. Try using #include <conio.c> instead of #include <conio.h>.

  4. #4
    tried <<endl; & <<flush; & <<endl <<flush; din't work. changing conio.h to .c worked
    Woohoo on to Lesson 2. thanks guys

    Its just a bad compiler

    Dev C++ just isnt a good compiler, get MSVC.

    I don't even have to write .h in <iostream>
    no skip line between #include and int main()
    it compiles and runs anyways. and now pauses.
    Am I learning bad habits??

    Cool Now you are...

    You where doing good code, but <> with no .h is limeting and not ocmpatable with everything. You need to understand what you are working with, u seem not to have been tought a lot of the fundemental lessons in the begging. I suggest the book I started with:

    C for dummies.
    Teach yourself C in 24 hours.

    Then just internet tuts and this site after that.

    I would be happy to help, SPH
