Hi I am new to c++ and I really want to learn this language
But I have 1 big problem so I was hoping that
someone could help me out. With almost every program
that I try to "link" I get the error:

undefined symbol _main in module winmain
I also alway's get a warning called:
No module definition file specified: Using defaults.
I dont know if these 2 things aer related but it
would be great if someone could help me or point
me in the right direction.
It does not mather what program I alway's get this error.
Please help because borland 3.11 wont compile my program's
because of that 1 single error.
Bye,

Rikus

It looks like you are Project type is Windows and not Console Application. I would think that you are using Visual C++ compiler. But please veify your Compiler and version.

I am sorry. Please reject my answer. I didn't read that you are using Borland compiler. I just read top portion of the problem.
