Well, you will need windows.h for the declaration of 'keybd_event()' and all the constants used there. Apart from that, it should work with any compiler.

method wise - the sample code cannot be used directly. right?

can you venture on a guess on how he accomplish this?

send ("hellow world!")


in a string and then automatically looked up codes for each symbol -


no wait, he could do string1[n]  and then replace each with codes he looks up!


" " = vk_space, or something


right?

Unfortunately, in C++ there is no generic and cross platform (by this I mean the OS, not the compiler!) way to do such keyboard scanning as it is not defined by the standard. Each platform will provide it's own way to achieve this.

I have this strange feeling of deja vu :)

I don't know why you don't just prototype it using VS first and then; once you are more comfortable with what you are doing look to migrate to another compiler. I'm sure it'd be a lot less painful for you :)

actually i have menu, children window, windows help, and terminology phobia and it's really bad.

i find dealing with only c++ code in text compiler with color coding a little less steep on the curve.

:D

You are a strange one Troudeloup, but a source of much amusement :)
