C++ on Slacko 5.5 [Solved]
I'd like to compile a couple of simple C/C++ programs.
I have devx_slacko_5.5.sfs but the required header files seem to be missing (specifically conio.h and iostream.h although there is a copy of the latter in /usr/include/giomm-2.4/giomm/ ). Do i need to install something else?
Thanks for the reply; iostream is in /usr/include/c++/4.7.1 but I searched system-wide for 'conio' with no success.
I recall conio.h from my Borland/DOS days and a quick google suggests it isn't a standard header in linux. It's only required for some cursor positioning in these programs... looks like I may have to resort to using ugly ncurses and re-write some code if I want to compile
