Just bought a book by Mike McGrath - C++ Programming in Easy Steps 3rd edition (probs a little out of date!) to make a start in learning C++, as I'm looking to get into the games industry and most engines seem to be C++ (I'm learning Digital arts and this is just to boost my CV! Plus I'm interested in Linux too so that's why I'm not using visual c++ express either)
I'm using the latest MinGW compiler as advised in the book and I don;t seem to be getting an output for the following code:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
usingnamespace std ;
//A C++ Program to Output a greeting
cout << "Hello World!" << endl ;
return 0 ;
it seems to work but doesn't display anything in the cmd window...
If anyone could explain why this isn't displaying anything it would help, and I don't wanna sound like an arse or anything but if you're going to chuck a load of code at me please could you explain what it does cause I have a tendancy to just chuck things in without understanding what they do...
@Vlad from Moscow.... I appreciate the help but I'm totally confused by that thread... I've not done any kind of programming before and I feel that whole thread is lost on me.... other than to avoid using system in anything.... which i tried anyway and got error: 'system' was not declared in this scope
Also forgot to add... the book is telling me to type the code into a notepad doc (currently using win7... meh...) and save as hello.cpp... running with the command c++ hello.cpp in the cmd
