Linux Visual C++ Compiler/Java Compiler


Is there either of those included on Slackware 9.1? Will I have to use Wine to preview my .exe C++ files?

Why would you be using Linux to make Windows executable files?

Linux cannot run windows .exe or MSDOS .com files directly, even if you do compile a windows exe on your linux box, youll have to use wine to execute it.

It is possible to compile any kind of executable, as long as you have a cross compiler. Below is a url that can get your feet wet.
