    Default C++ Compiler's

    Hello,

    I have netbeans 6.8 and I’m looking for a C++ compiler that works well with this flavor of Linux.

    Sorry, I do not know how you managed to post here, but this is the Dutch section of these Forums. You beter post this in the Programming/Scripting subforum of the English language section. I will move this there.

    I have no knowledge of netbeans, but I am sure that it is not a flavour of Linux. Do I understand you wrongly?

    You also forgot to tell which level; of openSUSE you are using. Maybe it does not matter much in this case, but while you are the one asking for help, you better provide at least such basic information to help the volunteers here to understand your question without first having to ask for it.

    In all levees of openSUSE I know, you just install the Developement package to have a lot of compilers including C++. YaST > Software > Software Management, then Package Groups from the View tab. Choose for Development and install the whole bunch.

    Since I use mainly eclipse for development with the plugins for java, c/c++,
    fortran, python, scala, I was first not sure to answer.
    But having a quick look at netbeans c/c++ integration it is supposed to work
    just fine with the gnu compiler collection.

    The compiler itself is the package gcc-c++ (the executable is g++ and can
    also be called with c++), but you are better served using the method Henk
    pointed to by installing the appropriate pattern since that does not only
    install the compiler itself but also all usefull helper programs and
    libraries.

    Yes, i should have provided more information related to my Os system(OpenSuse 11.4 Celadon) . I have a very old laptop made by dell called Inspiration 6000, but works fine for what i need it to do.

    Nevertheless, i have been working on getting a compiler for netbeans that i got though Yast. The version of netbeans is 6.8 and installed fine from the software manager.
    I've posted here also because i don't like just adding packages to my hard drive to just see what happens, so I’m going to work on what Hank has pointed out and ty for the info.

    I understand and sympathise with your approach, but do remember that
    YaST will also uninstall things for you, if they don't work out. So just
    trying things is not such a big problem.

    For an update, I’ve gotten a C++ compiler for netbeans and it worked very well.
    But, the down side i found right away was the older version 6.8 didn't like the newer 7.0.1 builds
    I’ve done on my other OS system. Nevertheless, i looked around some more and went to sun.com and found the
    new 7.0.1 and downloaded it and changed the permissions and went ahead an ran the install in the terminal.
    After the install was complete I then looked up the new application and started to test it out and it worked fine.
    The one downside i found is and was not a big one, Linux builds and windows builds don’t like each other , but i will see if
    switching back and forth will matter.

    Well I’ve been looking into switching the builds from OS to OS with a thumb drive and think it is a bad idea to try. If you where to have a major build why try at all really and have it mess your files up. With my simple builds relating to calculating the square feet of 3 jobs meaning using basic math nothing lost or damaged really, but if you where running loops with If or else statements within functions the outcome my have an undesired affect hopefully to just the files outputs.

    To be real, let go of c++. There is not sufficient consistency in the GUI
    APIs between OSs. Move to any of the popular interpreted languages that
    support OS independent GUI interfaces; such as perl, php, python, tcl/tk
    and java.
