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.

I have borrowed a simple program that is supposed to read from a file and
output to the screen. Simply pass the file to it at the command line. I am
pointing it at a serial port, instead of a regular file and I get different results when I run it from the old C++ compiler instead
of the new. Any help is VERY VERY appreciated. I am not sure if I am
simply not using the new standard appropriately, or if my system is
configured incorrectly, or the compiler.
Here are the specifics:
System: Suse Linux 9.0 (i586) Kernel 2.4.21-243-smp4G
Old compiler: g++ using gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)
New compiler: g++ using gcc version 3.3.3 (SuSE Linux)
to run command line: a.out /dev/ttyS0
When I compile under the old compiler it works fine, I send info down the
port, it reads it and displays it on my screen.
When I compile under the new compiler, it simply blocks, no info is read,
the program never proceeds past the first get().
Here is the code:
using namespace std;
int main (int argc, char* argv)
Can't say exactly what the diff is between the two compilers, though I'm not surprised it happens. You need to do more than just open the tty file and read from it, there is a lot of other things to configure. You'll need to understand your hardware, and if it uses flow control and what kind so you can set your rts and dtr as required, also baud rate, etc...
I've written a C serial library, what's the best way to get it to you. Its too large to post here. You can email me if you want it.
