VC++ counterpart in Linux ?
Hallo all,
Is there any Software like Development Kit, Application Programming Interface, or VC++ for linux? On my machine is Bebian running. If there is any kind of these desired software, what's the name of the package? Regards, win2s

Development Kit:

Application Programming Interface (API): does not exist for linux. AFAIK: this is a windows-ism. MS provides an API so it can keep it's source code secret. Linux source code is not secret. (Hmmm ... looking around, I see a range of API's for linux - mostly for VOIP phones - - - I suspect this is not what you want.)

Generally - you program for linux using C++ via gcc (directly or indirectly). You write the source code yourself. IDE's are available to help.

I just want to plot a continuous signal sampled thru RS232. For that purpose a simple GUI is needed, and some build-in functions which could be included to address the serial port. Could you recommend me some sample programs in C/C++ or certain developing platform?

I also have interest in VOIP, could you recommend me some links on that topic?
thanks, win2s

Whats wrong with the GNU c++ compiler?

For VOIP: google "asterisk".

As for the waveform - the kind of thing you seem to need is an "oscilloscope" program.

xoscope (for eg) takes input from the soundcard (so it is an audio frequency oscilloscope only) or from RadioShack's ProbeScope ... but there are many others. As usual, google is your freind. While I havn't researched all of them, I'll bet that many will accept RS232 input.
