Thread: Which Opensuse IDE is suitable for Visual Studio 6

  1. #1

    Default Which Opensuse IDE is suitable for Visual Studio 6

    Hallo!I have been writing C/C++ programs in Windows XP using Visual Studio 6.0 installation.I would like to run the same programs in Opensuse 10.3 and I have tried to use KDevelop IDE.Unfortunately,the C/C++ syntax for KDevelop is very different from Visual Studio 6.0 thus not compatible.

    Is there a Opensuse 10.3 IDE that can run Visual Studio 6.0 program syntax.If so,please tell me its name and where I can download it.Thanks in advance

    Microsoft VC++ is not fully compatible with the standard C++ and uses (VS6) windows API and win32 runtime environmet to work.

    I know that is a great IDE but I wonder If you like it just for its beauty (highlighting, intellisense, etc.) or you want to develop a win32 compatible application using linux?

    Try installing VS6 using wine.

    To my knowledge Visual Studio doesnt run in wine. Dev C++ is supposed to run fine under wine tho. It's a free GNU C++ IDE and works really well. We use it in college in our programming classes. Give that a try.

    Why use DevC++ in Linux and if so, why using wine?
    There is a lot of IDEs quite better running natively on Linux!
    I think people should get use to work with an IDE just to type code and "console + gcc | g++" to compile. The F5 or F9 is just too Windows

    I'm using Eclipse in my work for Java development. It has an environment for developing C++ applications. There are additional informations about Eclipse's C/C++ Development Tooling.

    I think Autocomplete/Hotkey is help. You can save more time, code faster, etc.

    Do you mean C/C++ language extensions of the MS C/C++ compiler? The only things I can think of at the moment would be the name of 64 bit integers and a number of pragmas... and differences in handling .a/.lib and .so/.dll stuff, but there'll be more of course.

    Best you could do is specifying what in particular refuses to work, 'cause this will most likely be due to some non-standard stuff on MS's side or stuff connected to dynamic shared objects / link libraries. Ultimately everything can be tweaked to work with both compilers and on both systems with just a little preprocessor dickery.

    Of course you could go on compiling everything with the MS compiler, but
    1. this will never run natively on your Linux installation,
    2. will never be compilable on anything but the MS compiler, and
    3. in the best case the problem is trivial and solving it will benefit your skills.
    Okay, you're starting to compile this code here, let's see some skill rolls!

    Um, my very limited programming knowledge is console related only, but could the OP be asking for something that automatically generates the X code for the windowing stuff when they say "IDE"?

    Visual Studio C++ projects use Windows specific things by default which are not C++ standard things. Since they are Windows specific it is most unlikely you are able to run them on any other platform than Windows.

    When you correct your code using only acceptend standard C++ syntax your applications should run fine on any platform.
