c++ forums


Whats a good place to get programming questions answered, specifically relating to linux?

Are there any good web forums I haven't yet stumbled upon?

I need to figure out how to execute other programs from inside a program and how to "browse" the filesystem... amoung other things.

you may also want to check out usenet. there are tons of really awesome newsgroups that deal with all manner of programming issues....in just about any environment. If you don't have direct NNTP support via your ISP, you can probably check out http://groups.google.com/ which gives you access to them via HTTP.

Plus there are probably a million great sites for C++ programmers out there, check out http://www.ddj.com/ . Also a google search on "C++" + user communities or something like that should yield good results.

Good luck.

well to answer your queston biefly theres a c ouple different ways to do boht things, and it depends on what environment your running in.

as far as executing files from inside another source file you can use the execve() family, do a man on 'execve' You could also take the cheap way out and do a system("command goes here");

brwoing the filesystem depends on whethor or not you in X(for the most part). if your in X chances are your using GTK of something similar, they ahve built in fuctions for browsing. If your at the console look into unistd.h. I dont have a man page for that on my system, just man pages for the specific functions i.e. chdir

hopefully the above will point you in the right direction...
