    Best IDE feature

    OMG I just found one of the best IDE features ever! I've never seen anything like this before!

    I'm learning java so I downloaded JCreator, and it has one of the best IDE features I've ever seen. It expands/hides curly braces, so you can hide bits of your code when your editing! You could be working on a 1000 line program, with say 100 functions, and just have 99 of them shrunk while the one your working on is expanded!

    I'll attatch a screenshot.

    Does anyone know of a C++ editor thats able to do that? Or even better, something that can add the feature to Visual C++ 6.0?

    Is this the best IDE feature ever, or have you seen better?

    Dev C++ has collapsing tree only in the Classes tab. stovellp is talking about collapsing in the code window.

    Edit: Yeah that is a sweet feature.

    IDE's on linux like anjuta and there are many others they also have that feature plus instead of just code it does it for many lines of comments that you can push that plus/minus sign to show or not show comments.

    ISTR CodeWarrior has had that for a while.
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.
