I am getting absolutely nowhere with this software
« on: January 02, 2017, 06:19:53 pm »
I can't figure out how to set it up. Been reading some posts talking about GNU Wizard and it should detect installed compilers and I should be able to see this and that and I see nothing. I have minGW installed and a trial version of SlickEdit Standard.

There is not a lot of info on the web about how to set this up.

For now I would like to see if I can can create a short and simple C++ source file and compile and execute it within SlickEdit.

Can you help me out?

SlickEdit standard doesn't support debugging or building. Download the pro version.

Okay I'm getting better success with the Pro version. What I'm trying to do is figure out a simple way to run my Java code in the external command window without the window closing down on me so fast. I've been researching on the internet ways to do this but it seems with Java you gotta write so much extra stuff and it just clutters up the code.

I would also be interested in a way if I choose to run my program in the editor at the bottom if I could configure it so just the output from the program shows, and not all that extra mumbo-jumbo clutter that usually goes with your program output.

If you can offer any tips please post. Thank You.

I tried using console readLine but it doesn't seem to work well. Unchecking "Capture output" does automatically send the output to a popup shell window.

You can reduce a lot of noise in the build window by checking the "Clear build window" for Execute and Debug.  Project>Project Properties>Tools Tab>Choose Debug or Execute tool and check "Clear build window".
