    Hello I recently purchased a book on c++ programming... which is entirely new to me, and I am having a problem "envoking the DJGPP compiler" as the book says. I was told that I would not need previous experience with this book, and the book starts with the "Hello to the CRUEL world of C++" (LOL) beginners program. From what I can gather, I should 1)write the source code 2)comple it and 3) Link it. The book is full of source code but no instructions on how to compile and link the programs it teaches you to write. Oh yeah, the book is "Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 21 days"
    Thanx for any help

    Why don't you try MS's Visual Studio ? There is a free version. From what I remember, some business features are remove in the free version like database things.

    Visual Studio is OK. It requires DLL before your program runs on other computers. I have used Borland as my compiler in Windows. It doesn't require additional files to run. It just runs. This is meaningless now, but it helps if you want to develop a program to be used by other people. The following may help get you a compiler and ways to set them up.
    If you haven't done any programming. Visual Basic is a good start which is included in Visual Studio. BASIC programming language helps to learn the logic of programming before adventuring to other languages. Learning C or C++ language and also learning the logic of programming will be a slow learning and tiresome process.
