    linux compat.

    howdy,
    my experience so far is that most of the code and for that matter most of the advice i have received from here is compatible with linux. i use rh 7.2 and g++ 2.96.
    my advice to you is:
    1. post your questions on the linux board.
    2. let folks know you are a nixer.
    after all we *nix'er types need to get the word out (shout it from the highest mountain) linux is the greatest.... i'll reserve the rest of this rant for another board

    M.R.

    Why wouldn't it be compatible with Linux? All C++ is the same, and all the standard libraries are mostly the same. That's why C++ is so easy...Standardization.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Standardization

    gnu-ehacks is absolutley correct
    the only incompatibilities i have run into is when using system calls like *nix = system("clear")
    m$=system("cls")
    i imagine this could also be an issue in the opening and closing of files because of the dos use of file extensions??
