how to Ensure my program works across platforms? namely, win98se and winxp?
i know the easiest way to do is to simply test them across, but is there a better way?
i work on my program at home using winxp and go down to my office (with win 98se) once a week to test my work
since win98se is an older platform, the stuff i work on winxp might not always work on win98se
some stuff i know:
- when putting in new functions, check the function documentation to see if it works on the platform
- if function doesnt work, try a work around using other functions
does vc++6.0 SP6 have a "check across platform" function in it?
OR if not, is that a program/plugin (preferbly free because i am not paid for my work) that checks whether my code works on win98se and hopefully report the snippets of codes that doesnt work or the extra stuff that needs to be installed before it works? because i dont wanna go down to my office to find that whatever worked at home doesnt work in the office.
2nd qns : what does the following means? does it mean i gotta install extra stuff on win98se before the function works?
