    Lightbulb What's best operating system for cURL c/c++ ? Windows or Linux ?! Problem

    Hello all,

    am interesting in c and c++... actually am working on windows xp or along time... am beginning in Linux Ubuntu but i liked it much

    ok my problem..

    i downloaded the library cURL from site:
    cURL and libcurl

    i was using Microsoft Visual C++ 6, 2005 and 2010
    i was compiling libcurl - ftpupload.c
    when compiling the file i got errors, when post error into msdn board told me that you need to install VC++ with MFC... i uninstalled all vc++ from microsoft

    now i want to use linux to compile with gcc or g++

    i found this link:

    You do not generally have to download software in that way, in Linux.
    Install libcurl and libcurl-dev from Synaptic or use the following command:
    sudo apt-get install libcurl libcurl-dev
    Also, you'll probably need to upgrade to a more recent version of Ubuntu. (Why did you install a 3 years old version ? )

    If you want to compile the package from source, just run "./configure", "make" and "sudo make install" in the downloaded directory.
    (This will also require you to install all the dependencies manually)

    Slow and Steady wins the race... if and only if :
    1.None of the other participants are fast and steady.
    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !
