Umm.... Zeno, I have no idea what to do. I installed the complier thing, but I don't understand what to do or how to do it. Could you help me out some? I just need to know how to get started and what I should do first.
Oh, and Sato's doing better. I visited him this morning.

If it's in Windows, I really will have no idea. Most MUDs don't even support compiling in Windows. Some people use Cygwin to compile if they can't get linux.

Ok, I'm trying to set up the Cygwin thing. The computer I'm using doesn't have DOS or that UNIX thing that I saw something about. Is this a problem?

UNIX is an OS, so you shouldn't have that. If you're using Windows XP, it'll work.

Ok, I think I've got it all set up. Now what? And what's the difference between using Windows and Cygwin? Oh, and on the programming site you gave me, it says to erase what is already shown, and to put this:
Code:
#include <iostream.h>
int main()
{
  cout<<"The Compiler Works";
  return 0;
}

What does this do?

Cygwin is a linux emulator. So you'll need to learn basic linux commands. Check out:

http://www.computerhope.com/unix.htm

I don't use Cygwin either, so I won't be much help with direct Cygwin issues.

Thank you. What did you start out doing though? Can I have an example? Sorry if I'm bothering you. Just tell me to stop and I will.

I got a MUD linux host and started up Smaug. Google for "mud host" to find some.

There may be a few, but they are all full from what I've seen. Or dead.

And if you don't know, I use Arthmoor for our host.

Hey, here's a stupid question. I don't have much money, and I can't find any free hosts, but is there any way for someone I know... hmm... say you for example to be like my host or something? Just another stupid question from me....

With Arthmoor, I can't because I'm limited to 1 port, and my linux machine isn't online. I suggest using Cygwin for a while to learn linux and some mud stuff, then you can get into the actual coding. A lot of people who can't pay for a host use Cygwin.

The Cygwin thing won't work on this computer for some reason. And I'll worry about the hosts later. Just how do I start out coding? I mean, I don't understand what to do. Maybe I should just forget it.... But then again, maybe I can figure it out.

If you want to start coding MUDs, this is the way. You can code without getting Cygwin if you just want to start coding. Like to start coding in Java, check out this link:

Ok, thanks. I'll try not to bother you anymore. It's just, Sato, Hayaku, Squee, and me are tryin to make our own MUD. Lol, not doing a very good job so far, are we? Oh, and do I have to download the Java complier? I already have the Bloodshed Dev one you suggested.
