Written in C++ and will compile and run on a Raspberry Pi, Mac or Linux machine.

Use as an example of a different programming language and what a compiler does.

Alternatively, you can copy and paste the code into repl.it as a new repl for C++ and then run.

Source code is here…

To get a C++ compiler, try this…

Copy and paste into a text editor, then save as news.cpp (or something similar).

To compile from the command-line:

g++ -o newsfeed news.cpp

Once compiled, here’s how you can run the newly created executable:

./newsfeed

Uses arrays of strings and random numbers.
