    getting g++ going

    howdy,
    noe that i have rh running. how do i go about getting g++ going.
    i've RTFM and it acts like i should just know how to :
    1. start the editor.
    2. start a new file/open an existing file.
    3. feed a file to the compiler and linker.
    4. find the make file.

    to be honest i don't know how to do any of these things.
    is there an online manual that will speak to this subject?
    M.R.

    well, you can start by looking up the terminology you don't understand... and you can give us information about your setup...

    To start an editor, you first need to know which editor you want to use. Popular choices are vi and emacs.

    To create a new file, open a file in either editor that doesn't exist.

    To feed a file to the compiler/linker, type gcc myfile.cc -o myfile -llibraryname

    and so on.

    You can either do that manually, or create a makefile(in which case typing "make" is all that is requried)
    All generalizations are false
