When I click on the sdcc icon it loads the program, but how do I run the compiler?
I am running Windows XP sp3 and my computer has AMD 1.3ghz processor and 504MB of memory
I am new to this,please help
sdcc is a command line application.
Generally one opens a command line window and type something like...
sdcc -o progname main.c
You may need to set your PATH environment variable to point to the sdcc binary.
You may also be able to run it from your IDE . for example I can run it from Silabs IDE by selecting it in the tool chain integration.
As Lee said you can load your program in a IDE and compile it
here is an ide (MIDE) with sdcc as default compiler. just install it and run it.
I am using Micro-IDE from Bipom Electronics. It's free, bare bones,runs right on Wondows XP and will link multiple source files in single projects, and works as expected.
