You sure have to stay on topic on those Code::Blocks forums though! Even though it uses the wxWidgets library, I've noticed in some threads (can't find them now, they weren't mine) that if a newcomer politely asks for assistance getting wxWidgets applications to compile within Code::Blocks, they immediately get shot down by mods, unless another forum member (perhaps an "advanced newcomer") happens to have the answer (and the answer is usually something like "You have to check off all the libraries in the wizard"). I don't know if it happens a lot, but these are the threads I find in search when I am looking for a solution to a similar problem. Anyway, I have Code::Blocks installed right now, it compiles stuff fine, it's very impressive, but I'm not doing anything with it currently. The problem with C++, which is probably the best language out there for writing real programs*, is that you have to think too hard about the BEST way to do it..queue, array, or stack..use a design pattern or just wing it..whereas in AutoIt3 usually there is one way to do it, or there is one standard UDF out there and you use that. Speaking of off topic!
