Code::Blocks my new favoured IDE?

November 27th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Not so long ago we argued about programming languages and IDEs. As expected several worlds collide. So maybe there is no answer to the question what’s best, but I want to draw your attention to a nice IDE.

I needed a platform-independent and comfortable tool for programming. One would say “Use Eclipse” but my past with Java and Eclipse was bad. Or one would say “Use Emacs or Vim, stupid”, true but Linux tools on Windows mostly are pain in the ass. What I finally found was Code::Blocks, available for Linux, Windows and MAC. It’s a nice, fast and in my opinion mighty IDE for C and C++ (other languages via plugins). It needs a bit time to get familiar with it but there are very powerful features making this worthwhile. I don’t want to waste your time anny longer so try by your own.

Little hint: the version receivable from the last Ubuntu LTS is ooooold so download debs from the website.

    problem is nevertheless, that you dont have documentation in the dropdown. what parameters does a function have, which return type has the function, …

    dont stone me, but i would rather program with ms visual studio 😉

    Ich nutze zur Zeit XCode für ein größeres C++-Projekt. Kann CodeBlocks STL-Container im Debugger anzeigen?
