  1. I am a new learner of C++ and have spent hours to install nana to work with the ide Dev-C++.
    I read guides like:
    Step 1: Start the IDE you use, set C++ include folder and library folder… Step 2: ….
    But can’t find the Include folder nor Lib folder in Dev-C++ and can’t follow the guides.
    Can anyone help me. (
    Thanks beforehand.
