Is this a trick question?

g++ as part of gcc (Gnu Compiler Collection) is very likely already installed, and if not certainly available as part of your distro.

ok i just installed it......however just running a little test program i'm wondering why i'm getting so many damn errors with this this little bitty piece of code.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;


int main()
{

cout <<"Hello World\n";

return 0;

}

i'm getting errors such as this one:

undefine reference to 'std::cout' but also many others as well.

Did you compile with g++ or gcc?

You must use g++

Cheers

Open kwrite or kate.

Save your blank document as helloworld.cpp (or something similar ending with .cpp).

Type in your code, it'll be coloured.

When you've finished and saved. In the directory where you've saved it at the command prompt type:

g++ -o hello.exe helloworld.cpp

This should produce an executable called hello.exe (it doesn't need an exe extension). To execute it type hello.exe at the prompt.

If you want more then start looking at kdevelop.

Doesn't bloodshed dev-c++ use a port of gcc/g++ to compile anyway.

Cheers
Amos

Save your code in an ordinary text file as:

sourcefile.C

(capital C)

Then to get an executable with the same name without the .C extension do

g++ path_to_sourcefile.C -o sourcefile

Here.. the executable is created in your current working directory.

....... and for a different name.. simply

g++ path_to_sourcefile.C -o executable_name
