How to write applications for different platforms? Linux, Mac, Windows and Mobile Platforms
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 15, 2011
We want to write a client for an online service which should be available on as many platforms as possible. This question is about what programming language and framework we should use to create this client.
These platforms are required: Linux, Mac, Windows, iOS (iPhone, iPod, iPad) and Android. The more the better.
There is also Titanium Desktop but I don't like the idea that the complete source code is shared with the final application. Titanium does this for Mobile too but it isn't that easy to modify an app loaded via App Store.
So, what other way is there to create an application which runs on at least the three major desktop platforms? I thought c# with mono would be the way to go but I just realized that you
How to move files in different directories in linux (cui)
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I am currently working on an exercise in the Command Line Crash Course (http://cli.learncodethehardway.org/book/ex11.html)
So far I learned and understand how to copy (cp) and move (mv) directories and files within the same path.
How do I move (mv) or copy (cp) a file or directory into a separate path? Example:
Here is a path
Path 1: ~/temp/i/like/icecream ~/temp
Path 2: ~/desktop/blue/red/yellow ~/desktop
If I wanted to get lets say blue from the desktop, into my temp folder how do I do this?
I always get a bash error or "this file or directory doesn't exist". I understand it is only reading what is in that specific path or what is in the "desktop" but I can't figure out for the life of me how to get two different paths to recognize one another. The only way I can successfully do this is use my GUI and put my temp directory in my desktop directory OR by dragging the files I want from the temp directory to the desktop. If I can do this with my GUI, shouldn't I be able t
Terminal Mac Os : How to know the executed command?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I am trying to install PyQT and the installation read say I should do the following :
Querying qmake about your Qt installation...
Error: PyQt5 requires Qt v5.0 or later. You seem to be using v4.8.6. Use the
--qmake flag to specify the correct version of quake.
>> qmake -v
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.8.6 in /usr/local/Cellar/qt/4.8.6/lib
So I see that qmake is not the right version. But I ask another question : how could I know WHERE is is the executer "qmake" ??? more globally : how to know which executable is run when we type a terminal cmd ?
