Question: Developing Terminal Programs on Jailbroken Iphone

Posted 31 December 2012 - 08:52 PM

I jail broke my iphone using Cydia. I wish to develop a simple client socket program for the terminal in c++ or c. Now I have some questions:
*If I just write the program on my mac(or other unix based system), and simply FTP it to my phone will it work? This is more of a question about compatibility than anything else.

*Of course I have to link some libraries to use sockets. Will that cause a problem when I put it on my iphone?


Thanks, I hope I posted in the right location because the iphone forum is all about C# and I did not feel that my questions are related to C#.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

The iPhone relies on Objective-C, not C/C++ or C#.

Sry, i ment objective c. But once compiled, doesn't it not make a difference? I am writing a program that could run on the terminal, not an app.
