I'd like some help on using Linux.
I have to write a C++ program that can control a robotic arm running on Linux 0S (Redhat 9.0)platform. I have done this in WinXP but i am required to use Linux as the platform....to which i'm totally new .
I know that Linux has built-in C and C++ Compilers (gcc and g++).
What i want to know is that:
1) is there any graphical-based Complier that can be used on Linux platform? Like in WinXP i'm using Borland C++ 5.02 Complier and Borland Builder 5. I understand that there is a graphical word-processor (OpenOffice) that runs on Linux and is very similar to MSOffice for Windows; so is there any graphical-based C++ complier for Linux?
2)Also is there any analogous software to Borland Builder 5 that can be used in Linux(for making interfaces)?
3) Better still, can i run/install/use Borland C++ 5.02 Complier and Borland Builder 5 in Linux?
4)Is is possible to access hardware(parallel port) in Linux?
Urgently needing your help guys!Any help will be much appreciated
Thanks in advance
