please help to compile c and make the output exe file on windows 7
I am a biginer and learing C, I am using notepad ++ to learn c, kindly help me to know how we can use complile the program and make the output exe file to test it in windows 7.
Thanks in advance
Notepad++ is used for just editing text. It’s not specifically made to compile C code (although it is technically possible). Since you are learning C I’d recommend an actual Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which is made to handle not only editing code, but also compiling and running it. Notepad++ isn’t actually an IDE. There are lots of free ones available.
I, too, am pretty much a beginner with Notepad++. But I LOVE it compared to trying to use the Arduino IDE.
So, can someone clarify: exactly what is possible with a “plugin” and what is not? In other words, could I call PlatformIO directly from NPP as my compiler for the (mostly C++) code used for my 3D printer? PlatformIO as I currently use it requires me to open a CMD window and type in some rather long and specific commands. It would be great if a plugin could automate that for me. I would have to set it up, of course, but only once.
Well, I just answered my own question. The “Run…” menu command allows me to point to a Batch file that does all the messy typing for me. And I can give that batch file a name (using “Save”) so that it’s easy to find without having to navigate directories. Two clicks and I’ve got my program compiled.
This program is great!
You might also want to have a closer look at the NppExec plugin. It will catch and display any compiler output in a dockable panel.
