c++ compiler.


woo hoo i got red hat 9 on my box in one night.. thank you all that helped and now i wonder..

where can i get a decent free c++ compiler for red hat linux? I've tried looking on google but it kept giving me crap..

any suggestions? the only compiler i have on red hat is gtk and im not sure wat it is.. im guessing it's something similar to vbscript.. something i'll explor on my own.

GTK is Gimp ToolKit , it isn't a compiler, it's ... libraries for creation graphic user interfaces.

gcc should have been installed by default, and it is fantastic.
check man gcc for options.

If you selected the development packages when you loaded the OS then gcc should be installed already.

To correct everything: gcc is C compiler. For C++ use g++. Usually they come in one package, so all you need to do is to install 'gcc' package (if you don't have it).
