I wanted to design a project in linux which could contain programming languages(C, perl, PHP, HTML, XML etc) basically a web based project. Why i have chosen to build on Linux is because it is Open Source, and lot many things can be automated through scripting languages, which in windows i don't know.
So, i have installed linux on a virtual machine(Host-Windows 2007 & Guest Linux CentOS), CentOS(command line interface). Since i am a beginner, so I want to know what all tools can be used to facilitate and ease my development process. Some which i know are listed below, and request you to please share your experience on this.
1) Using Putty so that can access the Linux machine from anywhere within the network.
2) Since i want to develop on Linux, but want to use windows as developing platform. So have downloaded Eclipse Editor (C/PHP) on windows. But want to know how can i access linux files from here??
3) Installed Samba, and still trying to figure out how can i access linux files remotely on Windows.
4) Please share your experience, as how can i ease my development process. and what all tools i can use..??
Please let me know if you need any other clarification..
