The problem with linking the dll I solved on my mate's computer. Create a subdir and add this dir to search dir instead of the project's root, select the dll anyway (choose all file) and it's ok. I'm sorry you good guy because it's my bad, I don't want to be troller and spammer or any kind of bad guy here. Other complains of me remains, though. Please revisit it and if you can fix it in the next major release. I'm looking for it. Now I'm happy with DevC++. I'll quit this forum a time.

What is my goal, huh? Making people to think me as bad guy or troller, spammer pleased you? I hope you pleased.
You started with the unproductive aggression.

The time I post the snippet above to reproduce the problem, I already removed C::B, how could I give you build log?
Reinstall CodeBlocks for example?
As you've said it:
It's very straight forward. Download...

if they can update the Borland 5.5 template to support Borland 10. The work is trivial,
Sadly this is not trivial for me:
1) Download the compiler
1.1) Register to download the compiler (sry, this is a no go for me, i hate registrations)
1.2) Setup the compiler and let spam your system with registry entries and other things (This is also a thing i don't like, spamming my PATH variable)
2) Download VR resource compiler
2.1) Register at microsoft (ugh...)
2.2) Download the full msvc build environment (UGHUGHGUH)
2.3) Install the full msvc build environment (TOTAL NO GO FOR ME, because i have only ~6GB of space left on my hardwarei do not want to waste it for microsoft)
3) Research the command lines
4) Research the error messages and write a regex parser for it (i am not that good ad regexp)
5) Setup codeblocks
6) Test all

I think step 1->2 you have already done (the big NO GO for me). So if you provide us with the command line the compiler needs we will tell you exactly how to set up codeblocks to accept it
If you tell us the error messages we will tell you how to set up the error parser
If all works on your machine, we will tell you how to provide a patch to upstream so we can incorporate it to codeblocks...

It's very straight forward. Download freepascal compiler and type fpc LibTest.pas then you've the dll, I provided step by step what I do.
See staps 1..2 above

I complain your default shipped TDM-GCC because it's broken
it was not broken at time the devs build the shipment. At this time it was the State of the art...

Quote
why you don't bundle the new MinGW already?
Building, uploading a new bundle is A LOT more work then going to
Settings->Compiler->Toolchain executables->Compiler installation directory

Quote
Indeed it's not fast like you said, you've to provide the MinGW installation dir and remove all of the mingw32- prefix to only left gcc, g++ not mingw32-gcc or mingw32-g++.
I do not understand this sentence. I do not think the mingw installation was changed in any part...

Quote
It has wasted me more then 10 hours search over the net because I don't want to ask on this forum.
You could have minimized this time to 1h if you have asked... As you see i try to provide a easy Step to step quide to any of your problems and questions


Quote
My problem is not compiler or linker because if I copy the full command like of, gcc, g++ to terminal and it run fine (miraculously). Only inside C::B it has problem, this is C::B error, don't blame the compiler.
Nice for you! Provide us with the command line and we tell you step by step how to set it up in codeblocks. Don't blame codeblocks if you don't know how to use it. We are here to provide you with help... As I said above codeblocks is complex and you need time to learn it...

Quote
Other complains of me remains,
I am still not fully aware of this problems... If you are talking about the compiler problems: the next release will contain an up to date compiler (if any).
If you are talking about the non functioning path settings you have to provide a more detailed description to reproduce. The steps you described work for me as far as i understand. I think we both are not native english speaker, so the language barrier is going between us also, so please try to use as easy and simple steps as possible. The best way would be something like this:
Quote
1) Create a new c++ project
2) Go to Project->Build options->Search directories...
ecc...
If you are talking about the dll wizard: If you select "c" at the beginning of the wizard, it will create a c dll like you need, if you select c++ it will generate a c++ library. I tested this at the moment, and all works as expected. If you have found something different please post it here...

I complain your default shipped TDM-GCC because it's broken

It does work, but the default C++ support is not C++11, it's older. You can turn on C++11 in compiler settings (project-build options-compiler flags), and even 14, but I think 14 is experimental in that version of TDM. But when you turn on "have gcc follow C++11 standard" flag things like std::to_string does work. Usually what happens is that compilers or IDEs or any tools or programs aren't broken, you are. Fix yourself and trust me, you'll become a better person and a better programmer.

No it not works: 'to_string' is not a member of 'std'
You should check c++ std status on GNU site: https://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/projects/cxx-status.html
The default TDM compiler really sucks. Don't blame everything on me. Don't try to teach me what to do what not to do, I don't care.

This forums really sucks. I can't even access it (even when not logged in) from google search result. isitdownrightnow.com always gives server down for more than ~7 days or not responding blah blah. You should reverse your words. Check yourself first, check this forums, not checking me. I spent time to search before ask. I didn't intended to waste time of anyone, just because I'm afraid and I'm very dislike mr. obfuscated attitude (which I see arrogant and childish, impolite) so I tried to avoid him. You know, he's the most active here aside from bluehazzard, when you post a new pic it's very likely he will be the one answering you, which I would rather have 0 reply than his answer   >:(

That's strange, because std::to_string works if you turn on c++11 or newer flag. There might be some differences or bugs in other platforms (or 32 vs. 64 bit) though. But if that's the case then use another compiler for the features you need. You can shout at the compiler or IDE all you want, it doesn't help compiling the program. There is a kind of a problem when you use new C++ features, because lack of compiler support in older versions. You simply have to think about it when choosing the IDE/compiler for your project before you do anything else.

You need to enable -std=c++11 option to use std::to_string(). It is not enabled by default but one can easily enable it from Project > Build options > Compiler settings Bundled compiler may not be state of the art but not absolutely broken either.

There were issues with forum and website access. I also faced difficulty accessing forum.

Regarding your other issues - I'm sure some of them, if not all, can be solved as long as you explain them correctly. You need to help us to help you.
Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.

The problem is somehow with the host provider codeblocks forum is using. My default DNS of ISP provider block forums.codeblocks.org but not the main site codeblocks.org (I just know by change to opendns). With the new DNS accessing the forums is easier but sometimes it's just down.

Embedded  TDM has error. If I use latest i686-posix-dwarf from MinGW64 (8.1.0) it's no problem. By default, since that version of GCC the default standard C++ is shifted from c98 to c11, you don't have to append -std=c++11.

Thank you. You're very kind. I like it.

I checked the same option but with std=c++14 (not 11)  :)

p/s: I'm still using CB now. Since it happily link my FPC compiled dll other problems are trivial  :)

For what it is worth, as a newcomer, I found CB excellent. I was looking for a sane alternative to Windows Visual Studio in order to write a Win32 graphical app. in C (I really can not stand C++). I find the layout and operation of CB logical and (reasonably) easy to follow. Project now complete - and many thanks to the originators.
