c++.chat - Cross compilation for Linux? From Windows to BlueCat?

I've used the DM compiler for some test sockets work.  It works
great from my Windows machine to the XPort network gadget.  But
the ultimate target is a BlueCat Linux machine.  I note in the
header files that "M_UNIX" is one of the settings.  Will this
cause the compiler to produce Linux executables?  (My command
window "hello world" program will not run on the Linux box.)  What
other flags might I need?  Is this possible at all?  Shouldn't
there be a "sockets.h" file?

Thanks, thanks, thanks.

There once was a unix version a very long time ago, but no longer.
