    error in g++


    i am compiling vc++ code in g++ and got error

    "direct.h:no such file or directory"

    direct.h is included in vc++ code .when i look for direct.h in /use/include/ folder i didnt get it.

    what to do now?

    any replacement header file for direct.h?

    what are the functions and macros or definitions specific to direct.h, io.h that u r using in ur program? for the functions look up the man page of that particular function, u will find what header file to include over there.

    Are you sure that these two are standard library headers and not just M$ extensions like the infamous conio.h. In most cases M$ discourages use of the standard libraries by providing their own equivalents. They aim for market dominance not for portabilty, so they want programmers to become their API's slaves.

    Kyku's not too far off. M$ are a-holes when it comes to the world of code. Remember when they tried to muck up the java world and even admitted so under oath in court?

    Why should anyone go easy on M$? M$ is a giant perfectly capable of defending it's own dastardly actions and little in need of defence from us tiny little pinguins

    Here is an interesting and funny article about how Linux saved M$

    Sometimes I just gotta wonder about where exactly journalists pull their ideas from. Apparently using M$ since before time began gives this guy an insight into how the minds of linux users work. Personally, I am not in the software business, in fact, as a user I am not in business at all, but I still want to have a machine that does not crash every 5 mins, and if it does happen to crash I would like to be able to fix that without reformatting my harddrive.
    Okay, so the guy loves M$, thinks they are wonderful cuz they dropped prices in third world countries so people can afford to buy their sh.., erm, product. Well aren't they just the philanthropical paragons of virtue. Of course, they still want to drag every red cent out of those who can actually afford their "products".
    People who rave about M$ sometimes get on my bloody nerves

    OK, but I also think the article illustrates well how this corporation works... they tend to work hard only when their position is in danger... if they regain monopoly they start to neglect users and provide bad service. Example? After conquering Netscape long time ago, they almost abandoned releasing new versions of IE, no matter how buggy it was/is. Now that Firefox jeopardizes their dominance, the guys at M$ are making a hype about a new version sporting ad blocking, tabbed browsing and blah blah blah..
