C++ Build Issue

Learning C++ on my own at home using Code::Blocks and online tutorials. All was well ( 2-3 weeks )until started getting error messages (below) during build process. Simple programs like the one below now run once, then I get error message. Can someone diagnose this for me? thanks


#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

int main()
cout << "boy I love bacon" << endl;

cout << "and ham \n";

cout << "and eggs";

return 0;

I think you didn't save your cpp file yet.

The error is saying that there's an instance of your program still running, or some other program opened the binary and has it locked.
