hi, i want to write platform independent programs and i am having trouble figuring out how to effectively carry out console input-output functions that would work both for win32 and linux\unix. i dont need any fancy gui api's, just something like ncurses (is ncurses platform independent?). PLEASE HELP! thanks! laugh

Try Java or Perl. Both work in either OS. C++ can make platform-independent programs, but they must be compiled with proper headers and includes for each platform. Both Perl and Java are more or less interpreted languages. smile
