Hi there, im new in C++, I'm learning every day new things about C++. But I have a question and I hope you caould help me, answering. I dont know if I program my programs in Visual C++ will be compatible with Linux and Mac-Os. I know in Windows will be, but in another system is compatible?

I hope you can help me, if not i need to find another compiler, i want to program games, expecially 3D games, im pushing too hard learning all what I can in the same day to complete my objective and this question I have and I posted to not do the program and then in the future see with all work and do alot errors because its not compatible with other systems.

It depends on what you use in your programs. For example, the programs in our C++ Console series use standard C++. So, all of those programs can be used on any platform. Likewise, the libraries that we use for OpenGL are cross-platform. So, the OpenGL programs can be compiled and executed on any machine. However, the set-up will vary, obviously.

The Win32 and MFC libraries are MS specific. So those programs will only work on Windows. I hope that clears it up.
