You can type your program into any plain text editor. On Windows, Notepad will do. On Linux, Emacs is ideal. I don''t know about Mac.

You then need a compiler to translate your program into executable code. Since you havn''t said what language you are using, I can''t help much there.

Any half decent book or web tutorial will explain this part in quite some detail.

Instead of worring about a text editor and a command line compiler, try DevC++. It''s a free IDE and works pretty good.

Here''s the link so you can look at it:

You''re going to have to learn to use periods if you program with C though.

And not to rely on those lame shorthands like "u" and "thx"

If you have MSVC, just create a new console app. In the file menu, create a new project (File -> New) and select Win32 Console Application. Give it a name (in the project name field) and click ok. Then select "An empty project." That should get you started.

Any programmer.c knows that the proper language.syntax combines both periods and semicolons as appropriate; For instance, accessing data from within a structure is done using a period; Termination of lines is done using a semicolon;

Life would be so much easier if we could just get the source code.

On the contrary, life would be much harder because
(A) The source code would probably be almost impossible to read
(B) It would be so long that it would take at least 1000 years to read it all, which is time well wasted.

What was that called? Unified Field Theory? Oh well.

[on topic] I wouldn't suggest you start out with C or C++ unless you know what you're doing. If you're new to programming all together, there are other, easier languages (Basic, VB, and.. Python maybe?). But if you're serious about it, then C and C++ will probably suit you fine.


Yes... VB6 is here to steal your minds fps. Very slowly.
Call .optimize(you.sig )
