Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I recently downloaded crossplatform project and compiled it .A Linux binary is produced and it is working fine for Linux..
I need to convert this binary output to windows executable(.exe)
Please suggest me some way...
My project is in C embedded with Tcl....
It can't be done. I don't understand why you would want to convert binary output ot windows exe? If you have the source code that works on windows.. you could make an exe. If u r really looking for soemthing that works on many platforms, go for Java.
Cross-compiling can do it. You need a compiler in Linux that will produce output for Windows. (I assume such a beast exists). But you can't produce a Linux binary and expect it to work in Windows (or vice versa).
2. You may be able to run gcc for Windows under wine or crossover office (I have no idea whether or not it'll run under wine) and compile the code "natively" (as far as the compiler would know), and it should be scriptable to boot.
The C source code should be able to compile for Windows with minimal source code changes. If you can't find a way to compile a windows exe in Linux you can easily install gcc on a windows box and compile the project there, I belive it comes with the right TCL libraries to compile that part.
As far as converting a binary Linux executable to a windows executable, they are very different, as was stated above and that's really not a viable option.
