Hi, I'm a student from Portugal. I've been fascinated by the Mac platform for a while, but it's only know that I've put together enough money to buy a computer just for myself (it's hard earning money being a high-school student ). The thing is, that I intend to study Systems Engineering, and I wondered if the Mac was the right choice. As universities here are PC/Linux dominated, i was wondering... Is it possible to program C, C++, Pascal, or any other mainstream computer language on the mac? If it is, can I take the code and compile it so it's viewable on PCs? Can I take the code and work normally with it on a PC? Which programs can I use? Thanks in advance.
