just make sure you use g++ on your .o files... because yes gcc will invoke g++ on a .cpp but it can't distinguish a C .o from a C++ .o. ; )



: : In MCQ's post, he said gcc, but how about g++ since we have been taught C++ that only makes sense. And PLEASE tell me we can use a GUI C++ editor and not that cursed vi.

: I usually don't bother to distinguish gcc from g++. Technically, gcc stands for "general compiler collection" and includes compiler tools for several different languages.

: g++ is the C++ compiler from the collection.

: If you invoke gcc on a cpp file, it will actually invoke g++.

: As for editors, as far as I'm concerned, that's entirely your choice. There are free GUI development environments for Linux, although nothing as sophisticated as the MS IDE.
