    adding new libraries?

    I cant seem to get borland to work, and i really hate the fact that there is no editor or anything, i love using dev c++ much more, the only problem is, it has like no libraries.

    Would I be able to update my libraries and add new ones and have them work in dev c++?

    Sounds like its time to upgrade your compiler, since Borland is no longer updating its C++ compiler i would go and get the latest microsoft compiler i think you can still get the beta free now i havent used it but it seems allright.

    The latest Dev will come with the standard library as well as some graphics libraries, etc.

    And yes, it is possible to add new libraries. I work on OS X, so I couldn't tell you exactly how to do it in Dev anymore, but essentially, you'll have to copy your files to the correct places, and then add a couple of paths in Dev's configuration. Also note any special instructions that come with the library, as they generally will not work unless you pay attention to these.
