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 -
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.
