Hi there, I'm new to linux and the forum here. I'm a c#/sap developer. I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to test linux scripts in widnows? like with a compiler or something. I'm learning the script and don't want to install the o/s just for that.
I suggest either cygwin or linux inside an VM like vmware or virtualbox.
It depends on what do you mean by "script". If you mean "shell script" then you are going to be relying in a shell to run it, hence you need a way to make the shell and the regular userland tools available. Shell scripts usually call external tools, no amount of compiling can sort that out because those external tools are not present in a regular Windows installation. You need to -somehow- emulate a posix environment with at least the basic tools that most shell scripts will need.
You can as well use something like putty to remotely login into a linux or unix machine, assuming you can get access to a shell account somewhere.
