    You could at least not include IDE's in the compiler options & there are more than 2 compilers :\

    lol - Hey now, I have been actively reading these boards for a couple of weeks again now, and I have not seen this poll. Maybe it was three weeks ago..

    Seriously though, I did not even see any mention of my favourite compiler or 'ide'..

    What is the deal with the Microsoft IDE's? I was at futureshop yesterday, and they were selling one for C# .NET and another one for VB .NET. Does that mean you have to buy one for each language? They were like $180 a piece. Kind of pricey.

    I tried vi... got stuck in it because I couldn't figure out how to access the help or exit.

    So now I use emacs for Linux and MS-DOS edit for Dos/Win32.

    I often use vim but when in X, nedit is quite nice; and if i can be bothered using up resources I load up kate while in fluxbox.
    gcc.

    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    No, you can buy Visual Studio.NET Proffesional and get all the languages included for a nice upgrade price (not ) of $500. The full price is about $1000+. And thats the Professional one. There is Enterprise and Architect versions but unless you're like some corporate guy or some real high IT guy, you would only use the Professional one.

    I recommend it absolutly. Windows will eventually upgrade to .NET as its API and therefore forget about the current WinAPI. .NET is a great library/technology. Makes everything easier and cleaner code.

    VS.NET comes with C++.NET, C#[.NET], VB.NET, J#[.NET] (this language sucks), and a whole bunch of other neat shiaz. The IDE is the greatest thing ever coded, ever.

    However, you can get all the compilers/tools for free from microsoft itself. They are all command-line. Its the IDE that costs all that bunch along with all the other stuff.

    Download your free .NET compilers: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    The help is better online.

    exit ':q'
    write ':w'
    open ':o'
    to force an opention add a '!'(some people call that a bang).


    I like Kate too, mostly because of the konsole part in it. I which console vi could do that(didicated console, not the run program thing).

    Anyone using ICC? It sounds good(havnt tried it yet myslef).

    <edit>
    Whats LCC?

    Thanks for the lowdown on the .NET stuff, Speedy5 - right now I am not running windows, so no real way of checking out the microsoft compilers or IDE's. If I do ok with the C++ courses I am going to take (they don't offer C courses at the local community college) I might try my hand at some of the .NET courses, in which case I would end up with a Windows box again...

    For a VB-like program that works in MAC, Linux/Unix and Windows, look at http://realbasic.com

    gcc is the best compiler (well i dont touch the unfree ones). who needs an IDE if you can manage your work with GNU Make and Autoconf and compile with gcc?
