C compiler in X ?


Hi,

Here is a newbie question. Is there a C compiler in Linux 7.3 using the Gnome GUI or do you guys just call it X ? If not, what is a good compiler you all use?

Thanx guys. 8-)

What do you mean "C compiler ... using the Gnome GUI", there is a compiler for C - gcc, wich comes with nearly all linux flavours, and it is available for download on ftp://ftp.gnu.org . If what you mean a GUI IDE (integrated development environment), you can get anything you need if you browse to http://www.freshmeat.net and submit a search querry for IDE http://freshmeat.net/browse/65/?topic_id=65

Ooof, I downloaded the tar.gz version and now I dont know how to extract it. Do I need to open a terminal window to extract the file or can I do it in X Windows?

Try Emacs. Microsoft Visual Studio.NET is basically Emacs in drag. Only Emacs is reliable.

PS.

tar -xvzf TheFileInQuestion.tar.gz
