does it have a version number or something we can ID it with?
somewhere on the menu bar or in the settings it has a place where you can say 'run this' (I belive, at least some of the versions have this). You set it up so "run this" is the compiler + flags.
it looks like version 7+ are 32 bit and can run on any windows 32/64 with some poking, and its on 28.1000.500 or something. It also looks like it has had the external tool support 'for a while' so I am guessing you have it.
It also looks awfully expensive for basically a notepad++ like tool.
Hi @Furry Guy - After downloading & installing MSYS2 the command window is unhelpful.
Ive tried to download VS 2019 Community but it is around 2.4GB in size & my weekly Internet connection only allows for 2GB, so Ive paused the download.
Im reading & trying to understand the cplusplus.com tutorial. At the start it teaches the "Hello World" program. Then on the right it says "Edit & Run" which uses the websites computer to generate the output.
That does not help me to build a program on my own computer.
The coding will need to enter my computers hard drive & I have no idea on how that is done.
Do I create a file & paste the coding then save it into a folder with a .cpp extension?
Then to open the program enter a link into the Search Command box, or maybe Run Windows Program box within UltraEdit?
The program will need to open either in a browser or in its own shell.
Ive now briefly browsed LearnCpp which does appear to save the files with a .cpp extension, so that tutorial appears to be better. But I will wait for your comment.
Try Code::Blocks if you are concerned about internet file size. Get the codeblocks-20.03mingw-setup.exe file, about 146MB. Includes a decent compiler, though not up to date as VS can be. You won't be able to compile with C++20.
@helios Im not so much of a Dummie with CodeIgniter (CI) however I doubt that any advice would solve my CI problem, so I will test your ability. We are building a website that is different to others. We have created the provision for users to create an advert & we are aware of how to place that advert into ONE category, but we want the advert to be displayed into several categories & CI will not provide for that, particularly with the fwrite function. If we had a macro operating within CI, say within a User Library, similar to that contained in UltraEdit32, then CI would not be as limited as it stands at the moment. A simple macro that will "Find or Select, Copy, Paste & Save" among other common keystrokes and or mouse & arrow movements will avoid the limitations.
I am intending to post a new topic on Macros, which will be in far more detail, after I get my "Hello World" program to work.
Doing things that don't make sense doesn't make you dumb, let alone things that I personally think don't make sense. I'm just trying to understand what you're trying to do, there's no need to feel personally attacked.

Okay, what I understand from this is that your website currently has a (client-side?) text editor and you ran up against some limitation of your framework that doesn't let you repeat work in some way...

...and you want to solve it by giving the user of your website a macro system in the aforementioned text editor so they can record a series of inputs and replay them on each of the desired "categories". Did I get it right?
I really, really do not think you'll be able to leverage C++ to solve your problem. Certainly not to do anything you couldn't do in CodeIgniter, I'll say that much. C++ macros have nothing to do with the macros you're trying to implement in your editor. If you still want to continue this thread out of pure curiosity go ahead, but as far as your original problem goes, I'd suggest exploring different avenues. Try asking in the forums for help: https://forum.codeigniter.com/
@helios - Did I get it right? No, you got it completely wrong as I never said the website currently has a (client-side?) text editor. Im not interested in what you personally think or your opinions. Im only interested in constructive criticism.
