[PD] More help for a newbie?

I know zero about pd. Which is more than I know about a lot of things.

But. Do you all have to use VC++? I needed to recompile some 19 yr old, no 
gui, c code about six months ago to run on a new Win2k box. I went to 
Borland, downloaded a nice and simple compiler (the command-line only 
portion Borland C++ Builder 5), a really useful help file, and had my old 
code nicely rebuilt in about an hour. Didn't even bother with a make file, 
just a few command line flags. It was all in the help file. And free too.

Good luck to all -- Andrew Culver
