    Post Macintosh Codewarrior

    Greetings!
    I'll get right to the point. I'm enrolled in a C++ programming class at my high school, but my school only uses Macintosh computers. We use a program called Codewarrior to compile the code and run our programs on the Macintoshes. Granted that I'm quite new to C++ programming, is there any way that I could work on my programs using my Dell PC at home? Is there a download that would allow me to type my code and run my programs without having to purchase a C++ compiler that will run on a PC?

    It would help me a lot, because right now I can only type my pseudocode on a word processor or hand-write it, and it would help me keep ahead in the class if I could actually run and debug my coding at home on my PC. I hope this makes sense to someone . . . thanks.

    though you should be careful codewarrior is very strict in adhearing to the ANSI/ISO standard and other compilers are to say a bit lax in that respect so i reccomend recompiling them in codewarrior before turning them in.

    Codewarrior is cross platform, meaning that there are versions to install on Mac or Windows computers. You could probably buy a small version of Codewarrior for your computer for cheap. Try a used computer book store. If yoiu can't find that, you might be able to find a student version of Visual c++ for about $40.00.

    no, i wouldn't recommend VC for anything of size since its not ANSI/ISO compliant this could lead to major rewrites to port to CodeWarrior.

    Lightbulb Re: Macintosh Codewarrior

    I don't think my teacher would accept anything not done through Codewarrior anyway, so I would definitely need to recompile it on my computer at school before turning my source code in to the teacher. But, having a C++ program at home will at least let me run my coding so that I know if I need to do a lot of debugging-- that's what takes the most in-class time, that and formatting it so that the display looks just the way my teacher wants it. He's really picky about that. Thanks a lot for replying to my post, it was really helpful.
