    What is the Most Popular c++ compiler/IDE for Android?

    I am looking for a c/c++ compiler for Android and found a few listed on the internet but I don't know which ones developers are actually using. Does anyone know the most popular c/c++ compiler for android?


    Thanks

    Patrick

    as far as I know, because android is a variant of linux, GCC/G++ is the native compiler for that platform. if you are actually referring to which IDEs are popular, eclipse is bundled with the android SDK, and the android NDK (native development kit) is also available for eclipse. android studio is another IDE that is specifically designed to work with android, but I know nearly nothing about it. I have no idea if it supports the NDK.
    Code:
    namespace life
    {
        const bool change = true;
    }

    Thanks that information helps. I see eclipse and there is C4droid with a gcc plug in. One question about android. When I see YouTube videos of people using C4droid they are programming using the small keypad on the android smart phone. How is it possible to peck out source code on the tiny smartphone keypad. Isn't there a large device to develop on?

    most android development is done on a desktop computer, and the compiled result is copied to the device. you could use a larger device, like a tablet, but developing code on an android device sounds tedious to me.
    Code:
    namespace life
    {
        const bool change = true;
    }
