    Nice idea! I am learning network programming. And I feel this will be very easy to do.

    thanks , i think maybe its possible to run a ftp server and have the directory pointed at the visual studio build folder and all you have to do is add cpps and .h your self and just compile with cmd line option, might just work

    cl /EHsc simple.cpp //this would then create a exe

    But you don't get an executable out of it.

    I WISH there were an online compiler. I'm away from my computer now, a state away, and using our host's computer. Of course I can't just load up Code::Blocks for them (tho I'd be doing them a favor). Really, I wish I could remotely access my home computer. Really, really I wish I had gotten the right part to fix my laptop before coming out here.

    But the problem with an online compiler is would it have PDCurses (or NCurses for linuxers) set up? How about OpenGL?

    A basic compiler would be of benefit for simple programs, but get any more complex and I don't see it happening.

    If the target system is your own, and you are using Linux, you can always use secure shell (ssh) to get from one machine to the other. There are ssh clients for Windows too, so you can use a Windows machine to get to your Linux machine.

    This should be doable. It would be a fun project. With a little client side scripting (not javascript) and AJAX, an executable should be straight forward enough to create.

    Somebody (ahem...) might be working on such a thing.
