View Full Version : how do i make a file with no extensions?

August 18th, 2006, 11:14
Hello there, i am currently trying to pick up coding from the one provided at psp-programming.com but i got stuck here...

And that's it for the program! Now we just have to tell the compiler how we want this project compiled by creating a Makefile. So create a new file called "Makefile" with no extention (ie, no .txt). Once you've done this, open it up in your text editor.

but i have absolutely no idea on how to make a file with no exensions. Any1 care to enlighten me? :confused:

say you had a file named blah.txt, take away he .txt on it and I think thats all you have to do!

From notepad select save as then press all files and save it as "Makefile."
