Installing code::blocks
« on: July 13, 2020, 11:26:15 am »
I'm new at this. I mean really new. I finally started to understand programming using a Just Basic course but want to learn the real thing.
The problem, can't install code::blocks. I keep on getting an error message. I tried downloading the program from the two sites available but one doesn't open  (BerliOS) and, it would seem, that the one on Sourceforge.net seems to be corrupted or has suffered change.
I can follow instructions in the Internet to stop my computer from blocking the installation but I'm afraid that I would be opening the doors to some kind of virus attack if I do. So, am I being over cautious?
Awaiting your responce. :-[
