    c compilers

    I wrote a program in turbo c 3.0 and generated exe file.I copied that exe file to bsd system its not working.I came to know many reasons for that,different operating system(exe file was made in windows xp),turbo c cannot run on bsd.When i compiled using cc, it generates many errors.Does conio.h wont work in unix.Please let me know c compilers in unix environment(AIX,FREEBSD).can i run turbo c program in these compilers or i need to write a new program again?Thanks

    Why would you expect binaries from one random OS to work on another random OS?

    Stop using non-standard functions, and your code will be portable. You'll still have to recompile, but you won't have to rewrite. Naturally there are some things you need OS specific libraries for. In such cases, redesign, rewrite, or find suitable alternatives.

    I don't know what you're using from conio.h, but I think most of its functionality can be found in the ncurses library.
