I downloaded the basic C stuff and rhide for djgpp yesterday.

The only problem I had was forgetting to put djgpp in the path.  I wrote
the program and saved it as hello.c and then I hit F9.  That is the make
keyboard shortcut..  worked fine...
One thing I noticed was that once I made it I couldn't remake it later for
some reason....  but that problem happened only after I was messing with
the options and then disappeared when I erased the options save files...

btw here's what I had as the program:

#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
    puts("Hello World!\n");

that's it...  just hit F9 and you suddenly have a hello.exe that works
