    Question Environment/IDE?

    Can anyone tell me what a good IDE should have, or what to look for in choosing a programming environment?

    This is what I am looking for -

    Free (got no $$)
    Educational use (license or whatever)
    Tells you when you do stupid things (like forgetting ; at the end of a line and stuff)

    This is what I use -

    djgpp compiler
    pcgrasp IDE for little programs
    jgrasp IDE for big programs (folding scopes)

    I find them somewhat useful, in that they are better than anything else I have tried, which is nothing.


    I am new to this board, so if this is OT please tell me.

    I think your next move is to Bloodshed's DevC++. It's free.
    I use the MSVC++ compiler and I'll be checking out Borland's C++ Builder this week so I'll be able to comment on it later (I like using JBuilder).
