Pardon my jumping in here...but I am new to this and thoroughly confused
You state that the program (IDE) is an environment for producing code and
myriad other functions (debugging, etc...) but that the user should read his
documentation on how to produce a "free standing" program. Shouldn't the
program be free standing once an .exe is created (via the IDE's compiler)?
Or, is this the difference between using an IDE and a "Command Line"
interpreter? It's just that I've never understood why one would use a
command line version when you have and IDE with which to do things much more
If I sound like I just fell off the turnip truck...well, my appologies.
