Re: Convertion from cygwin to linux

Is this a home-grown application (Created by you, or someone you
know, or your company?), or is it a package you retrieved from the 'net?
What Flavor of linux are you running?  If it's a well known app, then you 
might be able to find a pre-compiled version already packaged, depending
upon what flavor of linux you run.

If it's a home-grown app, and you are compiling it using gcc/g++, then just
copy your source tree over to your linux box, and try running make on 
the source tree.  Cygwin's environment is trying to emulate a standard 
linux environment, such that any libraries that are provided are source
code compatible (Calls to sprintf/malloc/fopen/etc are coded the same
under gcc/g++, independant of OS).  The Cygwin libraries are more of a 
Shim, in that they translate Unix/Posix type functionallity into windows 
specific behaviour.  Just so you don't get the wrong idea, however, this
is NOT trivial work.

linux? Please put some light on it.
