I recently started learning C++ and have decided to install it onto my computer to try writing some codes. So I chose Code Block as my IDE since it is free. I know, since I use Windows 7, you will probably recommend Visual C++. But I want to stick to Code Blocks since I have practice with it a few weeks back using my school's system.
So I installed code block. Now I try to type C++ but apparently it is not working. What I mean is I have the IDE but it would appear that I need the SDK as well.
Sorry I might be phrasing this incorrectly. Here is an analogy, when I install a Java IDE of my choice, I am also required to install the development kit of Java from Sun microsystem so that I actually "installed Java" correctly. Now I want to perform this step correctly in C++. Tried to keep it as brief but as clear as possible. Thank you for taking the time to help.
