    kooma:

    >>> Linux: g++

    Is that generally true on Linux? I was trying to help a guy compile a C++ program on a Mandrake Linux system. He said he used "gcc", should he be using g++?

    He could compile straight C but not C++.

    @adrianxw:
    in most case i would say YES!

    g++ is the gnu c++ compiler
    gcc is the gnu c compiler

    yes, he should try g++ -> the commandline syntax is qyuite the same...
    Hope you don't mind my bad english, I'm Austrian!
