    Post code EDITOR

    Is there any good editors out there which shows the "methods - functions" on the left hand side, so that we can skip from one function code to another just by clicking the methods (function).
    I am using Crimson editor but it doesn't have such function.
    Free ones first.

    Visual Studio? (Express Edition is free)
    Eclipse? (Free)

    Moved to General Discussions.

    Pretty much any integrated development environment worth using has such a feature. Even Geany, a lightweight IDE that I am experimenting with for use as a text editor has that feature, not to mention Code::Blocks and the Express versions of Microsoft Visual Studio.

    I like Emacs a lot. Although it does not at all support the feature of a class-browser.

    Notepad++ can do it, it also colors the code for you, and has support for macros and pretty much all other text editing functions known to man, it's free. However, it is not an IDE, so you'd have to use a stand-alone compiler, like MingW/GCC or MSVC or Borland or whatever...

    I use GVim almost exclusively. IDEs greatly slow me down and eat up too much of the edit space with browsers, toolbars,etc. Nice debuggers, but for me, that's about it.

    With a non-default yet website listed plugin, from what I see.

    I have heard statements to the effect that GVim is an IDE

    GVim + make is for me. :-) I feel like my right and left hands are switched when I'm forced to use a real IDE.

    So just move the mouse to the other side of the keyboard...
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    The mouse is the problem. Point, click, type. Point, right click, select, click, type. Point, click, build. Point, click, type, click for Search.

    I know a lot of that can be done with keyboard shortcuts, but I already know them all in GVim.

    Which is a good thing many of them can be reassigned within many IDEs. Phew.

    Yep, I'm sure many people are more productive in IDEs than I am. I'm only relaying my personal preference. I do occasionally use one to browse unfamiliar code, but if I'm in edit/compile/test mode, GVim + make is fastest for me.
