C library compatibility between different OS

I've done a bit of C and c++ programming, but mostly in Linux (some older version of Fedora and Slackware 13.37). It is my intent to write a program that takes an assembled hex file (all variable declarations for assembly code. Format is window xp text file) and isolate relevant bytes and and label them in a new text file. I would prefer to develop this in c in my slackware environment because i dislike my window development programs. I am concerned that the program will not function when loaded on to the windows xp machine i need to actually execute it on.

My question is, are c libraries compatible between windows and linux, or must i develop this program in window?

Much obliged to you all for any feedback.

Many c/c++ libraries are cross-platform, some are not. Are there any specific libraries you're thinking of using?

Everest40, your reply popped the words "cross platform" to my brain. (I feel rather daft for forgetting them earlier). Adding those words to my google searching yielded GTK+. From their website, it seems like this may fit my requirements. I shall investigate further in this direction.

Thank you so much.
