    UNIX (Linux, BSD, etc) Programming :: UNIX

    Hello.

    I am a Win32 platform C++ programmer. One of my interest now is programming in the UNIX platform. I have several questions.

    First off, I am not interested in scripting, per se, but rather real-world software design and implementation.

    In UNIX, what tools including libraries, IDE, and compilers, are used when developing client/server application running both as a service and GUI?

    What books do you recommend for developing client/server applications in UNIX using C++ that go over subjects such as multithreading, sychronization, multiple processes, services, and GUI?

    Thanks,

    Kuphryn

    I use bash/vi/gcc.

    A book that really help me was "Linux Programming Bible".

    It detailed Linux programming mainly with C and how it fits with the unix platform.

    Another good book I have (client/server) is "Linux Socket Programming" http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...87929?v=glance

    It details all you need to know with good examples.

    well, sockets are generally the same afaik as Winsock, without all the annoying Winsock API extras. As for a gui interface, I would take a look at gtk : www.gtk.org for gnome based apps and QT : www.trolltech.com/qt for KDE based apps, or you can go with TCL/TK if you want to script a gui(ugly however, imo).

    Gtk is more widely accepted than qt, but whatever floats your boat I would use vim gcc and make(optional) even though it is hard at first you should get used to it if you are going to program apps. make is going to be needed for large modular programming.

    I prefer Gtk to Qt because of the licensing issues with Qt. You could also look at motif if you're looking for wide acceptance however don't expect it to look pretty. My platforms:

    Mandrake Linux - csh/gcc,g++,gnat/Gtk
    Solaris 9 - csh/gcc,g++,Rational Apex/Motif
