C++: Compiling a simple C++ program on Netbeans

This entry is part 40 of 61 in the series C++

Now that we have configured the C++ compiler in Netbeans, we can test it out by running a simple C++ program to see if we have the Compiler properly installed.

1. From the menu in Netbeans, go to File -> New Project.



3.  As in the screenshot above, in the Categories, select C/C++

4.  In the Projects column, select C/C++ Application.  Click on Ok.

5.  In the next windows, you can leave it as it is and click on Finish.


6.  Under the source file, you should see a main.cpp



8. Click open it and you can see a template being created for us.

9.  We will add the iostream library and a cout statement to display a string as shown below.

#include <cstdlib>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main(int argc, char** argv) {
    cout << "Hello, World";
    return 0;

10. Now click on the green arrow button or press F6 to run the program.
