hey guys,

i have some work to do in C on a windows platform, windows 7 actually.

now i've look into the suggested IDE compiler combo you guys suggested and i've pickup Dev c++

i just type a test program, just to see how the compiler works

#include <stdio.h>

main ()
{
	printf("Test");

	system("pause");
}

now i get errors like:

linker error undefined reference to `_dyn_tls_init_callback`
linker error undefined reference to `_cpu_features_init`

this as nothing to do with the code, is it because i'm on win7 ?
should i try another IDE or i'll get the same error ?

what would be nice is to be able to work in vim, i already use vim to code java. now that's a combo question, if someone have a quick vim setup for C, that can compile directly in cmd mode

but, just a quick hand on the 1st part of this thread would be nice, so i can get this thing going.


thx guys

I don't know anything about Dev c++, but it seems like:
1) You are building the wrong type of project
2) The installation is not correct.

Dev-C++ is a bad idea (at least, the one from Bloodshed is).

Read this, pick something better.

What's this it says halfway down the page? Be careful doing this, though, as having two versions of MinGW might trigger linker errors ("undefined reference to __cpu_features_init"). That sounds familiar.

AW! Didn't know about that, should get the Dev++ suggestion outa of the starting C thread.

I've pickup Eclipse for c/c++ and it work fine.


thx alot guys.
