I have some source code to a MUD Game I was writing under a linux server(which I used a client, telnet, to connect to and compile the code). I edited the code under windows, and then compiled under linux. however, I no longer use that server and wish to work on the code locally on my windows machine - but the sockets were programmed for linux/unix. So is there an emulator, or some sort of compiler that would compile it into a windows program? Or is it possible to get a linux compiler that would run under windows, or more likely a linux emulator that could run a linux compiler to compile the source, and run the program? I plan to eventually get a linux machine, but that is a ways from now.
Any help is most appreciated.
