Thumbs up Trying to find IDE's for Linux - compiler specific


Hello all, I was just writing to ask if anyone knew of any good IDE's that can compile code originally developed in a Visual Studio environment. I am new to Linux, having just replaced Windows with it, and have some projects I've been working on via Visual Studio. I have installed both Eclipse and Kdevelop, however both use a g++ compiler. I'm new to using any kind of GNU based development tools, so I don't understand why the g++ can't compile a simple copy and paste program I coded using Visual C++. If anyone has had experience with this and can let me know how to fix it, or if anyone knows of any Linux compatible IDE's that will do the job please advise. One more note, I tried installing Visual Studio via crossovers but it wouldn't do it because I only have a Windows 2000 bottle, and it requires a XP bottle. If anyone knows where to find a XP bottle please let me know. Thanks for your time!!

Good luck there it no such thing

there is NO EASY way to build ANYTHING built on Mocrosoft's VS in Linux. that POS barley works in XP and vista


but if you want an ide there is eclipse

do some studying on the differences of c++ G++ gcc ,and CC
you might also want to google/linux some "how-too's" for eclipse
