now im a noob so I guess no huge loss.. but I finally figured out a bunch of the wincon api functions and was working on one of those screen saver type things where an image (in this case a character) bounces around the console bouncing off the images..
im typing away, making notes, working on my cases.. when I lose my cursor and now its sitting there hanging and Ive likely lost all my work since to my knowledge it doesnt autosave, only when you compile.. which I was nowhere near ready to.
This area of the forum is for General C++ Programming, and it seems you are complaining at DevC++ for crashing on you...
Not the place.
Try using another program if it's that annoying.
Most people use IDE's like Visual Studio.
If that's not your thing Notepad ++ is probably the best avenue to go down, mainly because of it's flexibility and multiple languages.
Save often! By the way, Dev-C++ is a pretty old IDE at this point, and no longer maintained. you may want to look into newer alternatives -- Code::Blocks, or the Express version of Visual Studio are both free.
(Still, for a program to be compiled and tested, the code you wrote until the compilation should likely have been saved first by the IDE)
Well, it appears you are talking about Orwell Dev-C++, which is maintained. I wasn't aware of this, and had remained with the notion relating to the last Bloodshed Software release -- which is fairly old.
