Hi,

I don't know about Borland C++ for linux
Try using the in-built gcc compiler (for C) or g++ (for C++)
Also if you want a gui environment try looking for Anjuta

thanks, but...

Thanks for the cues, but the fact is..
I think i should be more clear. I am totally new to linux. I had been using A Turbo C compiler with a dos based IDE with windows. however, since i shifted to using linux, i have been finding gcc a bit too demanding. vi completely blows my head off, and i dont seem to get head or tail of emacs. i'll try anjuta however as you said.

Hi,

You can download Anjuta for Fedora Core 1 from :
http://yarrow.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=967

For other Fedora distributions you can look in :
http://freshrpms.net/packages/

Also i would recommend you to try to use gcc/g++
It is very easy to use and you can find a lot of documentation and HOWTO'S related to it.
Just try Googling "HOWTO compile a c++ program with g++"

Using gcc/g++ will improve your understanding of things
see ya
