After skimming through a few pages that the search option threw at me, I wasn't quite sure if this question has been answered or not.
I am taking my final programming class in college and we are required to submit our work electronically on the university's unix server.
Throughout time I've been programming using MS Visual Studio 2010. The teacher said we wouldn't be able to write our programs using MSVS, that we would need to SSH to their unix server. While SSH'd use vim/emacs for example to code in, compile using g++ and we use a makefile to save time on the compile/link/exe
This to me, doesn't make sense. I mean, are the C++ library's on Windows and Unix different? Why wouldn't I be able to just write and test my code using MSVS, then when complete, just copy/paste into the text editor? Thanks for your time.
