Ya,I have used Powerbasic for a while and it is
great,but the current version PB3.5 is only
a 16 bit compiler.I payed $150.00 for it
2 years ago,had a ton of fun with it.I have
heard a lot of great things about djgpp and
allegro and since i want to move on to 32 bit
programs from 16 bit ones and to VESA from VGA
and lots of other issues,i am moving on to c
through djgpp...But Powerbasic _is_ pretty
cool,ya can slap out stuff really quick with

Ok,its been suggested that i use a shortcut
to rhide with the working directory bieng
the location that i want the exe's to go.
or run rhide from the command prompt while
in that dir.

Ok  "rhide.gpr" in the same dir as the working dir,got that 
part,but there are still issues that come up even then.
Its mainly a pain in the butt to open a little file
edit it a little and hit f9.But untill a IDE that is
nice to "non projects",i guess i will have to get used to

Ok,i am reading tutors and stuff but some leave out
a lot of things along the way,but this one:

DID tell me about prototypes...I got it,and now it works

Well,i figure that a nicely formated piece of
c code looks like crap in a proportional font
too...dont it?

And that file:// bug probably dont help either.

I see that hardly anyone here has a sig at all...
Maybe i should make one of those obfuscated c
sigs or something.

Be Cool,
