Someone help I need help with emacs!


Ok, I run linux redhat 7.3 on this computer. I usually program in C++ in windows and stuff, well, I am interested in programming in linux. When I found out emacs had a bultin C++ compiler I went to google and some other search engines but haven't found anything that teaches you how to use emacs c++ compiler. I have tried typing in the coding for a program to compile but I get a error saying like there is no make file in that directory. Can anyone help me with this?

The computer is a slow computer I am not planning on using such a huge program, 4 gig hard drive 166mhz computer custom built from 1997 by me I know your all gonna tell me you shouldn't be compiling on such a slow machine but its the only machine I have besides my Toshiba 1905-s301 Satellite laptop which is very good but runs windows xp home.

ok I don't know how to use the supoprt in emacs
when I was using it to write C/C++ code I would usually create a makefile and use that to compile it. You can create these as files and then run make on them.
