I was trying to compile programs using DevC++ for Windows, (I also looked at WxDevC++)
I can get generic console apps I made in C++ to compile under windows.
What I want to be able to do is compile some opensource programs that use make to compile.
When I create a new project it creates a main header file for me.
1. I would like to know how to compile a program that uses make from the gui on windows?
I know I will often need external libraries the program is dependant on...
Perhaps we could start off with Micropolis here's the link in ubuntu forum http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=665844
or you can pick an easier to compile game or application?
I know they have dev packs, some are here: http://devpaks.org/
2. What file in the package do I open first after I've downloaded and unzipped the source code, if not make?
Thanks for your time.
