Get Starting With C++

C++ Get Satrted

In order to write C++ programs from scratch scratch we have required the following softwares (Tools)

  • Text Editor

  • GCC (Compiler)

The above mentioned tools are most commonly available in a single software called IDE. An IDE provides the faility of writing, compilation and execution facility.

Install Dev C++ IDE

There are many popular IDE's (Integrated Development Environment) used for writing C++ programs. We will use Dev-C++ for learning how to program in this tutorial. We can download it free from here

Start With Dev-C++

Now we are going to create our first C++ project. The given steps are followed to create a project using Dev C++ IDE.

  • Run Dev-C++

  • Go To File > New > Project

Create Project Using Dev-C++

This Project window will appear. From here we have to select

Console Application

Select C++ Project

Write Project Name (By default it is Project1)

Click Ok

By Default this project will contains the following C++ source code

#include <iostream>

/* run this program using the console pauser or add your own getch, system("pause") or input loop */

int main(int argc, char** argv) {
	return 0;

After this Use the following Menu to Compile and Execute source code.

Execute > Compile & Run

The following output will appear.

compile and run project in Dev-C++, output window
