Hello everyone, I recently studying towards an IT diploma...doing my 2nd langauge in programming C++, thing is after installing the cd given by unisa and upon starting to study and compile my first short programme, I recieve the message that says "Source file not compiled"...
code : #include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ( )
{count << "hello orld"; return 0; }

Have I missed something when installing the software or is it something else ?
Please help as Im going mad trying to figure out what the problem is, at this point I think I will have better luck trying to find a needle in a hay stack.

Many thanks

Hi Jared, thanks. My bad...I meant cout. regardless this error still comes up, does the compiler have to be configured when installing ?

hey go through page 10 of the tutorial letter 101. also open the index.html on the disc, once there click cos111u then on the side read through point 3 Using the software. Also make sure that when you are saving your work that there are no spaces in the name of the file or folders in which you are svaing to. Good Luck

Yes, the correct way of writing the code is;

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ( )
{
cout << "hello orld";
return 0;
}

Good luck with your studies.

Your error message says "Source file not compiled". That means for some reason the file where you type your code in didn't compile. So you need to investigate the reasons why it did not compile.

First make sure your program has the cpp extension, example First.cpp or helloWorld.cpp.

Second, make sure your compiler settings is correct in your IDE. On the Disk 2010 follow the links index.html >> COS111U >> Method >> Settings Options. It explains how to set your MinGW compiler settings for the Dev C++ IDE.

HAVE YOU GUYS CHECKED YOUR DIRECTORIES ON THE COMPILER,YOU NEED TO CHANGE THEM ONCE THE SOFTWARE IS INSTALLED
