Can a man’s love for the command line blossom like a rose or age like good wine? I do believe the answer to my rhetorical question is a resounding YES! Recently I’ve found myself choosing gnome-terminal to execute things rather than clicking in a series of menus on my desktop. Don’t get me wrong; a GUI is nice thing to have, but the efficency of the CLI is unmatched. Through a series of unfortunate events I’ve setup my Linux environment for Android development (aka how trying to fix a bricked phone). I’m working with a fresh install from Fedora 16 Live. What that means is A LOT of packages/libraries are not installed. Just the bare minimum to get me going.
I’m reading a book titled “Beginning C++ Game Programming” by Michael Dawson. It’s really exciting read a C++ book, again. I haven’t touched a c++ editor nor a compiler since my college days. The last editor I’ve been in for a number of years is Dreamweaver – from 2004 up to Adobe Creative Suite 4. I did a quick search, on “linux c++ editor” and I found a program called Eclipse. Looks promising, so I’m installing it. 76 packages total. As for my reading, its late, so, I stopped at page 4.
