I realize this is a forum for linux, but i figured someone here could probably help.
I am taking a programming course at my college, and we have to make sure our programs run on a unix machine. I have no experience programming in unix and almost no experience using unix at all.
I use putty to connect to the unix machine at our college. I only know how to program using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. So, i was wondering if there is a way to create my program in Visual Studio, and somehow transfer it into unix to make it work there.
This is what my college's machine is:
The Sunfire v880 is a UNIX based computer running Sun's variant of UNIX called Solaris.
I read somewhere that i have to have the GNU compiler. I typed "which gcc" into the command prompt and it said: "/user/local/bin/gcc" (i'm not sure what this means). So, i don't know if i have to install the gnu compiler (not sure how i would install it).
Basically, i would like to program in Visual Studio, and transfer it into the unix machine to get it to work there.
Any help would be appreciated.
