    creating an exe file

    I want to send my brother my program I just finished for N factorials, but i cant seem to figure out how to make an exe file. Do I have to have the exe file and all the cpp. files ect zipped in a folder to let him view it? he also does not have C++ installed, does he need it to view the exe file? thanks

    Just compile and build your source code, then send the solitary exe to your brother, he doesn't need anything else to run it as long as the program doesn't have any outside dependencies (dll's, etc).
    Detailed understanding of language features - even of all features of a language - cannot compensate for lack of an overall view of the language and the fundamental techniques for using it. - Bjarne Stroustrup
