Is there a well-known package I should install for C++ Development Tools?
What do I type at the command-line after
sudo apt-get install?
Ideally, I want the same tools that were installed with "MinGW" on my Windows computer.
That may depend on your distro, but if you are using raspbian, the stock gcc includes g++, here's the version info:
Most distros will build gcc with C++ support, so this should be true for them too. The easy way to check is to install gcc then try
FYI, GCC is the "Gnu Compiler Collection" used by MinGW;
To compile C++ code you'll also need the stdc++ header files (
That's what is currently installed. If you don't see any libstdc++ listed, then just pick one from what's available (
That should (I think) include the base library as a prereq, in which case that and gcc and its prereqs should cover everything. If it doesn't, just install
best app for C++ can be found by either searching Code Blocks of going on apps and looking down till you see it and its actually quite near the top. I used this app on my PC before i discovered it on my raspberry pi and has syntax highlighting and everything.
