No errors reported. If there was a syntax error, it would say something like:

Compiling: test.c
test.c: In function 'main',
test.c:13: "argv" undefined (First use of this function)
test.c:13: (Each undeclared function is reported only
test.c:13: once for each function it appears in)
test.c:17: Parse error before '*'
There were some errors

But there was nothing. That makes me suspect the program was not run at all. The
spawn[xxx] function returns -1 if it cannot find or run the program. Rhide
probably saw that this number was not 0. Because it was not 0, it automaticly
assumed there was an error.

Check if you installed properly. Make sure C:\DJGPP\BIN is in your path. That's
porbably it.
Remove "nospam." from my email address to reply.
It's too late to run when you hear the boom.
