Hi,

There are very few posts here about anything Linux related and I haven't seen anything relating specifically to using C++ under Linux to consume the IQFeed APIs.

The sample C++ code that can be downloaded from http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api.cfm is for Windows (plus I actually had to install MFC support and Windows XP support to my Visual Studio 2017). The page doesn't mention anything about target operating systems but I guess that Windows is silently assumed.

I have seen one other thread where someone mentioned that people use WINE to run the Windows IQFeed binary on Linux. That doesn't seem to be ideal. Does anyone have a better solution?

Thanks

Not sure what other users have done, but yes, the only way I have seen to run our application on Linux is with a Wine solution, but if anyone has another I would be happy to hear it as well.

Apologies for the late reply; I've been on vacation.

I've been running IQFeed with Wine on Linux for years. Only once (back in 2015) have I had a significant problem, and Tim worked closely with me to solve it.
