Have mercy on a poor Win guy...

I just recently left windows and jumped into Linux. It's cool and I love it, but I have no Idea how to program for it. I have been programming for windows for a while, so I know C/C++ and all that great stuff, but I'm not even sure how to get started w/linux programming. Can someone help point me in the right direction?

    So have I and I can't offer much help other than you'll find a compiler called GCC (hopefully) on your system which is a C compiler. Borland are also releasing Delphi early next year which is what I'm waiting for. Good Luck.






  • Most Linux distributions come with a LOT of goodies which include compilers for C, C++, TCL, Perl, you name it, they got it. It sounds like you are used to Visual C++, so the Linux versions of things will take some time to get used to. I use the "vi" editor for all of my Linux Programming.



    My recommendation is this.. Learn as much as you can about the Linux/Unix Operating system FIRST, and then after you are used to the command line, etc. try out some of the compilers. (My personal favorites are Perl and TCL)
