Hay i'm new here + new to c++ :cheesy: But not new to programming/Scripting (QBasic/VB/VBS/VBA/Batch/HTML) LOL Looks like i like the basic stuph :eek:

Anyways i'm learning C++ But a good start would be a Compiler! So where do i get 1? oK thats my question!

Thanx

Writing windows programs in C/C++ can be a bear for even experienced programmers. I started out with the DEV C++ package and quickly switched to BCX. This is a basic to C/C++ translator that uses simple basic code and allows inline asm and C code. If you are familiar with basic you can then look at the generated C/C++ code and learn a lot!

Write your basic code on the included editor and compile and run it from the editor or even fancier, from the included visual IDE. This program has excellent help files and a good selection of examples. You can look at the C code it produces. You can make win-gui or console programs. BCX is written in BCX!

The whole free package can be downloaded, including the PellesC compiler, from:

There is quite a nice group of users at

Would you please stop plugging your favorite BASIC-like wrapper? It's akin to this:

"I want to learn C++, where do I start?"
"Start by learning <so and so language completely different from C++>, it's a much better language and stuff."

Well i have used devC++ but i have found it quite slow(since it's free it wont hurt to try though). If u are itching to spend money u can get any other better commercial compiler. But here's how i do my job,

1. I have downloaded the free-command-line compiler from borland,
2. I use this free editor named "crimson editor" -- it allows u to compile ur code using ur existing compiler(in my case the free borland command-line compiler) and run executables without working in the console mode. U can actually use crimson editor with any compiler to compile any language, for example u can compile java program using crimson editor by using the free java sdk from sun. So whether C++ or java u can compile ur codes conveniently with this editor provided that u have necessary compilers installed.

regs doesnt work in borland c++ version 5.02 ,what could be the problem and the solution.....i want to continue working on the same compiler or better version of the same.......

resurrectin a 6 year old thread for this post was not necessary. No one cares anymore
