I am relatively new to emacs. I'm wanting to set up cc-mode. I'm having trouble with the process. When I initially viewed list-packages, a search brought up cc-mode, but something I've done means it is not there any more. I am using the default package source at elpa. I have downloaded and byte-compiled cc-mode into ~/.emacs.d/ and made sure it is in the load path (although I'm not confident I've done this correctly). I have tried the tests mentioned on http://cc-mode.sourceforge.net/installation.php and c-version isn't recognised, just as an incremental search does not recognise 'cc-'. I would be grateful for any help.

cc-mode comes bundled with Emacs[0]. No manual installation needed. To make sure that cc-mode is available, just go to the scratch buffer and type (require 'cc-mode) place the cursor at the end of the line and press C-x C-e, it should echo cc-mode in the mini buffer.
