Writing "Code::Blocks" Without the Colons
« on: February 18, 2011, 04:52:35 am »
As I'm sure you all know, the ":" character is not permitted in Windows file/folder names.  So, what should I call my Code::Blocks folder?  (I usually name IDE project folders after their respective IDEs.)

Is it "CodeBlocks?"  "Code Blocks?"  Or something different altogether?

Whatever you want, it's your system and your naming scheme, so it's up to you to find a name.

I would prefer the first cersion (the camel-case one).
If possible don't use spaces or other special characters, because some versions of MinGW (compiler, resource-compiler and/or debugger) and maybe other compilers have problems with it.
