Its not the same but it is close, and yes, you do have to be good at writing portable code. I know that it does handle c++ iofiles differntly. I just recently expierenced an instance of this when i was trying to use the ifstream command. It worked wonderfully on my nix box but when i tryed to transfer it over, it bombed. At any rate, i have no reall point to this post so.... yeah, just watch your code and you'll be fine
