Hello there!

Redhat 9 comes with a C++ compiler built in, so the steps required are
quite simple.

Use your favourite text editor to create a file in your home
directory, called "test.cpp". In this file, write the following:

#include <iostream.h>

cout << "Hello from Google Answers!\n";

After saving this, open up a console window, and type:

g++ test.cpp -o test

Assuming you saved your file in the correct directory, it will now be
compiled. The executable file will be called "test", and you can run
this by typing:


Easy enough, I hope! If it's not clear, though, please use the

my best to help you further.

All the best,

Hello again!

There are quite a few good Integrated Development Environments for
Redhat (and in fact, all Linux distributions).

You could try KDevelop:

Or Xemacs:

Or KDE Studio:

Or Eclipse:

Hope one of these suits your needs!

Regarding your questions at

If you paid for the software with a credit card, it is entirely
possible that you will be able to call your credit card company and
have the charge removed from your bill. I know that VISA and
MasterCard will do this. There should be a Customer Service phone
number on the back of your card, or on one of your billing statements,
and you can file a "dispute" for not receiving merchandise for which
you have paid.

The amount will be credited back to you account immediately, and all
associated interest charges for that amount removed from your bill.
You will most likely need to gather all documentation about your
efforts to contact the company and write it up on a "dispute" report
that the credit card company will send you.

Or, you can write a letter stating that you are disputing the charge,
the date of the charge, the amount, the company involved, state that
you didn't receive the merchandise, document all your attempts to
contact the company, and then mail or fax it immediately to your
credit card company, rather than wait for their generic form to arrive
in the mail.

I hope that this information enables you to get speedy resolution for
your problem!
