I hope this question is not too simplistic or vague,
I am new to RS-pi and feel very intimidated. :oops:
I program using visual C++ and I have created a very amusing console app.
I understand that raspberry pi cannot run exe :?
Is there anyway I could convert the source code into an executable program for RS-PI.

Thank you in advance.

No need to feel intimidated !

I think you should really learn to do it from the commandline.

The compiler is g++ , so
Code: Select all
 g++ sourcecode.cpp -o appname

will get you started. If you do not like the CLI , type startx and then use "Geany" .

If you are into .NET , google "Mono project".
It runs on the Pi.
