Please Can anyone help me my code compiles fine with GXX but not with GCC Why?
I thought gCc could compile c++ code.
I know that the user_input should be a String  but i can't compile it that 

Also i get this when i type GXX at the prompt i think i should get no 
input file.

e:/djgpp/lib\crt0.o(.data+0x92):crt0.s: undefined reference to `main'
e:/djgpp/lib/libc.a(crt1.o)(.text+0x312):crt1.c: undefined reference to `main'

Please help Me kdawghu AT hotmail DOT com
