Hi C++ Experts,

    If I need to write some codes with GUI or user friendly interface, such as pop out a window and move the mouse .... are there ways to do these in C++ ? Or I must go and use Java or some other languages ? Thanks very much !!!

Sure - take a look at e.g. wxWindows, which is a portable and royalty-free GUI library: http://www.wxwindows.org

Hi meow00,

For linux system you have to download a graphics library to the job. Here is a good graphics library. It is the most popular one.

Precisely

Without a graphics library it becomes quite difficult. In fact I myself had asked a simple question regarding how to plot a simple pixel in linux. You can see for yourself.
