i'm a student from austria learning ansi c an java.. because i'm the only one with a mac in class, i get no support from the teachers for programming with xcode. and because of that, i have some questions to you

i'm making a programm in ansi c, but there is a problem with the libraries - they are not there. (windows.h, conio.h..)

yesterday i searched a librarie for getch().. but i couldn't found one - today i have another problem with atoi()..

so.. my question to you -> are there any libraries for these functions? or is it better, when i install parallels or something like that to programm ansi c?

ps: my english is not the best, sorry for that

sincere regards,
QUOTE Thanks

A basic Google search shows that those first two .h files are NOT ansi C, but Microsoft proprietary add-ons.

A possible replacement for conio.h might be ncurses.

Do a man for ncurses, getch, and atoi in the Terminal.

I'd say since you are clearly doing Microsoft specific coding that you would be better off installing a VM with the appropriate Microsoft OS and programming tools.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
