    Question Please recommend an editor...

    Hey, I just got DJGPP a few weeks ago, (moved from lcc) and I was wondering if anybody knew of any good text editors (for windows) that can do syntax highlighting for C/C++ code. It would also be handy if you could set the path to the compiler in
    them and they have run menus and all that stuff.

    edit: URLS would be helpful

    Thanks in advance, Bri.

    haven't tried it but i believe that RHIDE is the best editor for DJGPP. A search at google should throw it up.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    ultraedit is what i currently use - it's the best ive found for windows so far: http://www.ultraedit.com/
    It takes a while to get set up, but once you do it's pretty slick.

    Bah.....(notepad == crap)

    I like textpad, and it does have some support for C++ (though I must admit I dont know what), and its a real solid, feature rich text editor......

    You're all crazy... vi is all you need (variants such as vim and elvis are also acceptable)

    I use Texturizer as my Notepad replacement of choice. nice interface and feature-rich (not as much as UltraEdit, but fairly good)

    I guess it all comes down to what environment you're more comfortable with, but for DJGPP, RHIDE really seems to have all the bells and whistles.

    You're preaching to the choir here! Although, back in the day I often used pico (before I knew of vi), but once I was shown the light, I converted quickly!

    this might also be a good option, which i use with DJGPP.

    http://home.t-online.de/home/Jens.Altmann/jfe_eng.htm

    it allows you to have customized command-line commands as window-menu options, which can be really cool. it also has things you can use to organize multiple source files over one name. i find it very useful.
