ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: On my PC I use RHEL, at office AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, RHEL.
C and C++ Under Linux
I am familiar with C/C++ and have worked on Windows Platform. But I am finding it a little bit difficult in programming for Linux because I have no idea of as to what "include files" are available therein for Linux and what not which are found for C/C++ for Windows.
For example, these line of code would not work in Linux:
and so wouldn't their related functions which I have been using so far in Windows.
So, can you suggest me how to find out what "include files" or "header files" are out there available to work with in gcc for Linux? Could you give me a link to a good online or pdf tutorial where I can get all this info?
However, I am going to google it now. But I think you guys have got great ideas!
The place to look for documentation on the compiler most commonly used (the gnu gcc/g++ compiler) is http://gnu.gcc.org/onlinedocs/.
Scroll down the the version of gcc you are using, and choose from PDF, Postscript, html, and tarball.
I think a more appropriate place to look is the glibc online reference. 99% of what I use when programming in C on Linux is covered there. The gcc, ld, and make infopages are also very useful for understanding how Linux programs and libraries are built. As far as graphics and terminal, you might want to look for documentation of ncurses, Qt, and GTK+.
