    Question help needed

    i was a win user till a few days ago when i decided to go opensource.
    i learned the basic of C at the university using compilers like Borland C++ (Dos version) , I learned a little more C using CodeBlocks,DevC++ etc.
    Now i switched to ubuntu installed codeblocks and many things don't work.
    i tried using gcc to compile but most of the time it doesn't see header files.
    conio.h, sys\stat.h, io.h !
    are those header files strict related to windows?
    please advice me a book or an online resource that i can read to see the difference between C win programming and linux programming since it's a new thing,
    Thank you and best wishes.

    Hi, Build-essential is not in Ubuntu by default. Run this in terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    Also, I had this thread in my subscriptions. Hope this helps

    But I prefer to use Geany.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install geany
    please advice me a book or an online resource that i can read to see the difference between C win programming and linux programming since it's a new thing,
    All other coding as far as I have done (not very far) is same as what you do on windows.
