How to Install C++ Software
In order to be able to run C++ code, you have to install the necessary C++ software to execute and run the code.
C++ needs a compiler to turn the high-level code written in by a programmer into machine-readable code which a computer can understand.
This is the first important step in first learning C++ really because you can't run any code until you know how to appropriately download the compiler necessary to run the code.
So how can we download the sofware necessary to execute C++ code?
This article will break it down, step by step, so that you can have the necessary software downloaded (for free) and begin running C++ code.
Where to Download the C++ Software
To download, the necessary software to run C++ code, go to the website: http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html.
Or go to google and type in dev C++:
The first option that will appear is the site referenced above, www.bloodshed.net.
