Re: [cdt-dev] Newbie question

First of all, this _is_the wrong place. Better post it in the CDT-newsgroup.

Second, the error message just tells it all - it can not find a main
function.

int main( int argc, char *argv[])
{
   // i.e. print that Hello World
   std::cout << "Hello World" << std::endl;
   return 0;
}

The main-function should reside in global namespace.
