    You don't have to go back to linux, but if you know linux why would you want to switch to windows?

    You can use the man pages that are online and as long as you stick with standard C, you should have no problem with linux pages. Also, there are many other sites that can give you that same info specifically for windows.

    Which compiler do you have?

    Most compilers have some form of help - vc++ has MSDN for example
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Probably afraid that they might learn something

    Probably afraid that the teacher will found out as knowing nothing

    Well if they're teaching ANSI-C, it shouldn't make a bean of difference.
    It would be a useful check for yourself to make sure everything they say works on both platforms. Then you can hassle them when they try something dumb like "fflush(stdin);"

    Probably because they don't know how to command line compile, and only know how to build MSVC++ projects...

    There is no reason at all you couldnt code in linux and submit it. I remember coding in FreeBSD during my OOP C++ class. STL made it completely portable. If they had any beef with something not working just take ur laptop in (you DO have a laptop right?) and show them that the code works perfectly. You could even write it on Linsux and copy it to a floppy, take it to the lab, and compile on whatever god awful compiler they are probablly using. Its just hard to stick to the standards and remember that every other tard in the class is probablly using system("CLS"); every chance they get. Blasted windows.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    
    int main( )
    {
        
     
       char x;
       
       printf( "____________________________\n" );
       printf( "Dec | Hx | Oct | html | Char\n" );
       printf( "----------------------------\n\n" );
       
       //Ascii code's, from A-Z
       for( x = 65; x < 91; x++ ) 
       { 
           printf( "%d   %x   %o   &#%d;   %c\n", x, x, x, x, x);
       }
       
       return 0;
    }

    Your code has nothing to do with Windows or Linux, so why are you moaning? Your effort of "porting" this highly complex program should be as simple as compiling the exact same source on the two different compilers, what's the problem in that?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Yeah, and how about using \t in your printf() statements?

    If you're going to learn the WinAPI or DirectX or something, you're going to need to use Windows. Get used to it; coding is coding.

    Oh, and lern 2 spel u gud 4 nuthin AOLer.
    Away.
