    Question IDE

    Hi,

    I have good experience with C++, and C and am starting a new project that I need help getting of the ground with. The project is an IDE, specific to use with the GCC compiler collection. I would like it to be geared towards operating system development, as I am currently working on my own os! I need advice as on what GUI framework to use (WinAPI, MFC, GTK+). Also any other IDE specific stuff???

    I have looked around and I cannot find an IDE programmed in C/C++ at all! Dev C++ is in Pascal ( I think ), Eclipse is in Java! Does anyone know of an open source IDE ( fairly simple ) that I could look at the get an IDE of what I need to build.

    Many Thanks,
    Harry.

    Take a look at Code::Blocks.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    yeah I would second that. Code::Blocks is really good...their new version 8.02 now works with windows vista. Code::Blocks also supports a multitude of compilers too.

    code::blocks perhaps?

    Or goto sourceforge.net and search for IDE, there's 1000's
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
