Just start RHIDE in this directory. RHIDE creates (by default) the .o and the
output (.a or .exe) in the current directory. I guess you are using a W9x short
cut, so set the working directory to c:/djgpp/projects/
Usually I never use "direct access" short cuts, just change directories (using
Volkov Commander) and run RHIDE in the directory where the project is located.

Is in the help, anyways: save it to rhide.gpr in the same directory where
rhide.exe is located.
Warning: you'll need to use projects or choose Project|close or some options
will be grayed.

^^^^^^^^ that's the declaration of the prototype, not a function invocation, use

In the same place where you downloaded the compiler.

Be patient, expend time on it ;-))
