Title: Can't Compile Anything
Post by: rob on January 14, 2006, 01:31:58 am
I just downloaded Pelles C and when I try to compile a basic program it says: ***Error Code: 42***. Can someone tell me what this means and why it wont compile?

EDIT: I got it working but it wont build an .exe What am I doing wrong?

Have you tried the help file: "POIDE reference" -> "Your first project: Hello, World"...? Is this working...?

Ya I opened that and it worked, but when I try and make my own it doesnt work. Is there a step-by-step instructional thing anywhere?

If you want help you will have to be more specific about the problem otherwise you will simply be ignored.

Post a small sample of the code causing the problem and a list of the errors that are being generated.

Google for "C Tutorial" if you are just beginning C.

I need to know how to use this program. I know how to programm in C. I created a new project, it compiled fine, but it wont create an exe file. I would like information on how to correctly set up a project and a workspace so it will create an exe file.

rob,

Attached is a simple GUI demo and a PDF file demonstrating the steps to build a project with screenshots.

Good job Vortex, I think that Pelle should add the tutorial to the distribution, it will help lot and spare many questions by beginners to the forum.
Maybe it could be embedded in the help.

Yes, very nice Vortex.

I can add a second example to the help file: how to compile your own source file - otherwise step-by-step instructions are already present for a wizard-generated file (as mentioned above).
