C help
« on: August 27, 2020, 11:57:47 AM »
I am trying to find an IDE for compiling C code on a Ubuntu system.

Not having much luck.

I tried Pelles C using wine, but got the message, unable to load resource DLL (RSRCnnnn.dll)

I  used gcc to assemble some simple code.

But other C code had headers that only work with WIndows.

Are there other options?







Take care,

Doesn't GCC provide you with an editor/IDE for compiling code ? I know there are a number of normal text editors available for Linux Mint so you should be able to find an IDE in the package manager in your Linux version.

I always use Qt Creator: https://www.qt.io/product/development-tools . This is the closest thing I could find on Linux to Visual Studio. I always use it when I can't find a bug with gdb.  :biggrin:
