Geany on Windows for C++

At school you will likely be asked to use Linux for our programming classes. (Unless you are majoring in games). Since I use Windows at home, documentation is provided for both on this site.

Getting Started (instruction for a IDE managed project):

1. Start up Geany
2. If you are working on a single cpp file, you may simple add the needed flags to the build and command lines. However, if you are using multiple sources you will want to create a makefile.
3. To execute the make file you can run make by clicking on the downward arrow next to the build command and running make. You will need mingw32-make in your Make dialog box.
4. Fill in the name of your executable file in the Execute dialog box.

Make file examples are given on the summary table section of the documentation.

Note that on Window under Edit->Preferences->Tools you will set your terminal to cmd.exe /Q /C %c
