Okay, I’ve been learning C so that I can dev for the VB, among other reasons, and my favorite program for C editing is this great program called Dev-C++ <http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html> by Bloodshed (you’ve probably heard of it.) Unless I’m mistaken, its default compiler is mingw, and it says that it’s gcc based compiler compatible, so I was wondering how you would add gccVB to its compiler list. I tried last night, and managed to get it to recognize the libraries and header files, but I can’t seem to get it to recognize the binaries. It seems like it would be possible to add gccVB to the compiler list….is there something I’m missing here?

EDIT: All I can get is the compiler saying “too many arguments”. I’m not sure whether the compiler has a problem with the code, or with the binaries….

Have you tried the gccVB from David Tucker’s site? I’ve never tried using Dev-C++ with any compiler other than mingw, but I remember DT saying something about his gccVB allowing it to compile multiple c files instead of only being able to do a single c file (or with everything #include’d). That could be the cause of “too many arguments” if it’s trying to compile multiple c files. Also, don’t forget, there is no c++ in gccVB.
