Is C++ compiler found in RH Linux 8?


Hi,
I'm intending to install Qt in my RH Linux 8 desktop.
However, I'm not sure if there is already a C++ compiler in RH Linux 8?
Where can I find that?

Sure there is... if you installed the development packages. It's called g++. Try typing g++ from the command line or typing whereis g++.

Have Fun

It's an extra bit of the standard GCC compiler.

Hi,
I cannot find the g++ compiler.
Ok, I admit I more familiar with MS windows.

By installing Qt, I can get a c++ compiler quite similar to MS Visual C++?

Hmm.. stick the Red Hat install CD's in and run the redhat-config-packages program. Install the development tools and you'll have the g++ compiler. When you say installing Qt will give you a compiler similar to Visual C++, do you mean an IDE similar to Visual C++??

Hi,
I have not yet install Qt, just wondering how it will look like, compared to MS Visual C++

I have selected the install everything option for the RH Linux 8, but I can't find the g++ compiler, where can I look for it?

/usr/bin/g++ It's a command line compiler.

hey all,
just write a c/c++ code in your fav. editor (mine is vi/vim) and save the file and go to that file from command file by changing the dir. then type gcc filename.c outputfilename press enter
by the output on the command promt u will find that u have a compiler or not . or do one thing type
# find / -name gc*.*
here if u find gcc then u will have the compiler

the compiler comes as a standard when you install the development package. it called gcc.type "gcc help" in the comand prompt and see what it says

Qt is not a compiler. It's a library. With the library comes QT Designer, a programs that allows to make GUI for your program easily (you just draw it) and make the code from it. But to compile your program, you'll need gcc/g++. It's command line compiler.

There are also graphical IDEs (they use gcc/g++). Examples: Anjuta, KDevelop. They should be both on your installation cds.

Tks dudes...

Ok, so I can write the codes with Qt, design the GUI with Qt designer and compile the codes using g++ or Kdevelop.

Am I right?

you are close.

kdevelop is an Integrated Development Environment which means that is is a program that will call the editor, g++, run your test, call the debugger etc.

KDevelop can run QT Designer when you need it (option in the menu).

BTW Make sure you have QT tutorials installed. They're good and nice examples are provided.

as far as I know

non gui compiler is gcc. You can learn a lot out of it's man pages <man gcc>. You have to specify for which C language you are compiling, BUT if you name your files well, it will know. Ie. "file.c" it knows that it is a regullar C. Let me remember the extension of C++.
ehm :-)
I believe it might be this one:

*.cpp

but if it doesn't work try: *.cp; *.c++; *.c+

and a simple line command:

gcc -o output_file your_file.cpp <enter>

that should give you what you need...

Other than that -- I have no idea ;-)

Good luck - Tomas
