    Re: How do I install dev c++ for ubuntu

    gcc is installed on most GNU/Linux distributions by default. Open the terminal and use this command to get everything you need to compile and run programs:


    sudo aptitude install build-essential

    Re: Beginner Programming Challenge #9

    New entries are still coming in frequently enough to postpone the judging. Until things slow down, keep coding!

    Re: Beginner Programming Challenge #9

    I would like to remind everyone to provide instructions on how to run your programs. I have a lot of these to go through and it would really make my life a bit easier. Thank you. :)

    If you can't immediately envision a solution to this problem, then I'd say you qualify as a beginner. Have at it! Since you're skeptical as to just how good you are, I encourage you to write this in...

    Re: C++ Classes...I think

    Not entirely sure what you're getting at, but it sounds like you want a class to create characters from, like so:


    // character.h

    #ifndef CHARACTER_H
    #define CHARACTER_H

    class Character{...

    That isn't a fair trend comparison at all. The word "windows" can refer to many more things than "linux", which is only one thing. Don't forget that windows are for seeing and letting light in,...

  15. Re: What GUI toolkit would you recomend?

    GTK+ for Gnome, and Qt for KDE. It's really as simple as that. If you're set on using C, GTK+ is what you want. C++ for Qt. Both are cross-platform. From what I've heard, Qt has a very clean, useful...

    Re: does more ram = more power consumption?
