thank you for the help you two  i really appreciate it 

opened the zip file 

im now stuck  my objective is to create a c++ program (say helloworld.app)  then
compile it to produce the exe file that can be run.

i think i have to do this thru link
obj.files
output files
map file
libraries and paths
definition file
resource file
these are the thing it asks for

any suggestions

I wrote this little guide a while back in another thread: Notepad can be used to write and edit your code. To do that you: Open notepad, write your program, e.g.: #include <iostream> int main() { std::cout << "Hello World!" << std::endl; } And you save the program to a file, say hello.cpp. To be more accurate, this is the source code of your program. The you open a command prompt: Start Menu -> Run -> cmd (if NT/2000/XP else command) The rest will be done in this commmand box. Now you change the the active directory of your command prompt to the folder in which you stored the source code, this is done by the cd command, e.g.: cd \myprograms\hello Now you have to compile your program, that is, create an executeable from the source code, this is done by the compiler, you do it by running the command: dmc hello.cpp The compiler will most likely print the slightly odd message: link hello,,,user32+kernel32/noi; If the compiler succeeds, it will have created an program called hello.exe. You can then run your program by typing the command: hello And your program will write: Hello World. You have to download STLport from where you downloaded dmc to make it work. -- Absolutely not the best homepage on the net: http://home20.inet.tele.dk/midgaard But it's mine - Bertel
