Hello there, I come from a Java background, and I am a very able with java.
I would like to try C++ to build a chess engine, since my java chess engine lacks the performance that can be obtained using C++.
I've been trying to set up a C++ IDE, I tried with eclipse, but the whole setting up process was too confusing and ultimatley didn't work.
I really need an IDE, I don't like working with notepad and command prompt.
Can anyone recommend a good IDE to get started with, and how I can set up.
Also a nice tutorial to get me started with an HelloWorld program would be good.
Can anyone help. Thanks
