Did you see my example above, where it showed the compiler being called?  Yours has it also (somewhere).  That is the command I need to see.

For the version number ... open the command window, then CD to the directory with the gcc compiler.  Then issue the command "gcc -v".  I need to know what version of gcc you  are using.

ok gcc version is 3.4.2 (mingw-special).

ok i see your line. its the build log. Here is mine
[ 50.0%] mingw32-g++.exe -pedantic -Wall -ansi -g    -c "C:\...\1.c" -o "C:\...\1.o"

it is using g++ instead of gcc.. why?
In compiler settings mingw32-gcc.exe is selected as default C compiler.
mingw32-g++.exe is selected for C++.

The file is blabla.c and when i create a new one i select C, not C++..


Thx

The g++ compiler of course expects all input files to be be C++ files; I'm not sure how you got to this point.

Go to Settings->Compiler and Debugger and on the "Selected Compiler" list select the compiler you are using (probably called GNU GCC Compiler), then click the tab called "Toolchain executables".  There will be both a C compiler and a C++ compiler listed there.  Make sure that "mingw32-gcc.exe" is listed for the C compiler.

Thing is that i did not change anything there..

yes i already checked there and its mingw32-gcc.exe as C compipler.

But for some reason it uses the mingw32-g++.exe compiler which is the selection for C++.

It will only work if i put mingw32-gcc.exe as C++ compiler(!)

Seems like it cannot see that my file is a C file (despite the fact that its .c)

Look at the file's (!) properties what compiler environment is selected there. Maybe you changed that by accident.

File -> properties -> tab "advanced" -> compiler variable and compiler. Do *not* modify just post what's written there.

...but you*did* create a project? Or do you try to compile a single file? If so - create a project. ;-)

erm... no i didn't :shock:

i tried with project and the file compiles jsut fine! thank you!

But again.. why it did not compile as a single file? More specifically why it does compile but uses the wrong compiler?
Has to do with the project thing?

ie In ms visual C++ IDE u cannot (i think:P) compile a single file, *but* the compile etc buttons are non-clickable..

This is by design. Supporting single-file compilation has limitations (for several good reasons). Actually I would vote to disable it completely to avoid such misunderstandings.

hm.. ok now i understand :)

btw.. better disable it completely or warn that it only compiles C++ single files!

I would vote to improve it (that's what I use the most of C::B) :D

I would vote to have an option to enable it; that by default is disabled.
