Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring Code::Blocks, part of Learning C.
- After you've obtained the compiler and IDE,…the next step in your programming journey…is to ensure that everything is working right…and that you're ready to start coding in this course.…In this movie, I'll show you around the Code::Blocks IDE.…You'll also see how to incorporate the exercise files…for use in Code::Blocks throughout this course.…And perhaps do some configuring.…I assume that you already have Code::Blocks installed…on your computer, although you may not have run it.…If you don't yet have Code::Blocks,…please refer to the earlier movie on obtaining an IDE.…
Open and run Code::Blocks.…If this is the first time you've run Code::Blocks,…you may see a prompt reminding you…that you've downloaded Code::Blocks from the internet.…Click the open or OK button.…This program is safe to use.…On the Macintosh and Linux, you may be prompted…to choose a default compiler.…If it's available, I recommend that you select…the LLVM Clang Compiler as the default compiler.…Otherwise, the GNU GCC Compiler is fine.…
The main Code::Blocks window looks like this.…
