C Compiler for RH Linux
My dad has just started teaching me C, which is going to be a challenge and a half but v. worth it, which, at the minute we're compiling on windose (he's never looked at *nix).
We're using M$ Visual C++ environment for compiling the code but i want to do most of my compiling on my RH 7.3 box.
Ive done a search for Linux compilers and there seems to be a few, however, im looking for one that would be most similar to the M$ one.
Since ive seen so many 'C/C++' threads here i thought i'd ask!
ps Im a complete n00b with this language!

r3b00+ gcc comes with redhat 7.3
look at the man pages for more info on the compliler i to am also learning the big C im a n00b to
to compile code with gcc type without the quote "gcc -o <what you want to call the compiled file> <file name>.c
as i said you can read the man page "man gcc" or tyep gcc --help
hope this help's

Well to be quite honest, there is NO compiler simmilar to the MSVC one..
The most common compiler on unix GCC (GNU COMPILER COLLECTION (I believe)) is a command line based compiler,
if you are looking for a RAD suite for linux, look at Borland Kylix (going strong with version 3 now) or KDevelop (www.kde.org) or the GNome RAD suite (forgot the name)..
Hope that helps
