[Mono-list] Getting visual studio .net c++ code to compile and run in mono
Wed, 17 Mar 2004 13:52:47 +1000
I am a linux user of a number of years and just started a course in C++
programming where they are using Visual Studio .Net as the IDE for
learning programming. I am running Debian on a PPC so I thought I might
be able to use it to get the c++ code that is writting in Visual Studio
.Net to run on my computer.
I have successfully installed mono from source and got it to compile and
run a couple of example c# programs, although I have to use the mint
runtime rather than mono which I found out is due to the PPC.
What I am wondering though is if it is possible to compile a c++ file
rather than a c# file? The problem with the c++ files written in Visual
Studio .Net is that they can't be compiled using g++.
An example of the program I am trying to get working is:
using namespace System;
//double (double precision floating point)
double USD = 79.99;
//convert from US to AUS dollars
AUD = USD / 0.78;
//display the conversion
Console::Write( "US $77.99 = AUS " );
Console::WriteLine ( Convert::ToString( AUD ) );
//make the window stay open till we hit Enter
Is it worth trying to run mono on x86 based chipset or is it just that
when you write c++ code in Visual Studio .Net you are stuck with running
it on Windows.
Thanks for any help.
