Re: Cannot get 'Hello World' to compile
That was it - using g++ as the compiler and changing the file name to .cpp
The executable file was placed in my cygwin/home/username folder. Do I have
to specify that folder in the set path variable for Cygwin to see it? I'm
not entirely clear on this issue.
I really appreciate the help!
