I'm a fairly lightweight (in virtual world only, sigh) hobbyist who finds programming fascinating. I enjoyed teaching myself C++on my old machines. Bloodshed Dev C++ I found particularly robust and reasonably forgiving in older Windows OS. We recently switched to Linux for most of our machines and I found Anjuta a useful, if slightly eccentric, sub. Now, we've got an earth-shattering bruiser of a machine, which runs Vista, and steadfastly refused to compile .cpp files for Bloodshed. The error message is "g++: installation problem, cannot exec `cpp': No such file or directory." Is this simply an installation problem?
