    Eh, I'm waiting for 2010... and praying. It's an ok IDE, but it would be really nice to get legitmate regular expressions, not the craptastic version I discovered. Per-project indentation settings would be fantastic. Bringing a copy of gvim to work as crossed my mind. It's really not that bad of an IDE - the GUI for debugger is really powerful and I would love something similar for gdb.

    Recently someone took over maintenance of DDD, which is the GUI gdb, and released a new version. It works fine for me, and probably is about as much fun as a graphical debugger could be, but it is slightly irritating to build (most distros do not have a package) because the interface uses motif and the current lesstif (motif clone) has a wee bug in it. I do have a fix for that, it's only a few lines, but again, you will then have to compile *both* lesstif and ddd from source.

    Not by me it ain't. Especially if you have to play "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" monkey in order to believe that last part

    So why not just one big program instead of an OS? It could be your web browser, your IDE, your word processor, your file browser, and your digital image tools all in one terrific integrated package! Imagine the panes and pull downs on that baby!

    Nah. Sounds almost stupid now I think about it.

That said, the lines between a powerful text editor and a lightweight IDE are blurred... but as mentioned I think the key to this differentiation is whether tool integration is required for a given feature (but distinguishing between a tool and a feature of a tool can be difficult, since IDEs themselves can be considered tools in their own right).
    I would call that a word processor rather than a plain old text editor.

    You seem to just want to make up your own definitions of things. A word processor is a WYSIWYG tool for preparing human readable, printed text documents, using an intermediate file format.

    A text editor is for editing raw text and is obviously a completely different, totally incompatible thing. Of course, word processors and text editors may have features in common, like auto-indenting or whatever.

    There is no "gray area" here. You can call a text editor with syntax highlighting and auto-indentation a word processor, but it is not at all a word processor (which AFAIK usually do not have syntax highlighting anyway). You could call it a musical instrument too, but that is not what it is: a text editor.

    Vim will source and type variables under the cursor with a keypress and perform auto-completion in some languages. Really, this is an extension of the syntax interpreting possibilities of an editor. Since it is not integrated with a compiler or build system, it is not an IDE, which is a text editor integrated with a build system. Or do you consider part of the IDE a "word processor"?

    You won't get any brownie points by trying to argue with an exaggerated example that tries to ridicule Elysia's much simpler statement. She's talking about integrated development environments. And that's just it.

    We all realized by now you don't give them a rat's arse. Fine. Others here don't give your vim a rat's arse either. And that's just as fine. If you prefer a few tenths of tools each with their own syntax and whatnot, because that somehow makes you feel empowered, that's really your prerogative. It's your porno.

    My porno is the least amount of possible tools. And I'm just as happy as you are.

    Besides which, I wasn't ridiculing anyone. She made a universal statement:
    everything in one solution is always preferred to several programs to do it.
    which I was indicating, via extrapolation, that this universal statement is false or absurd. You obviously must draw a line somewhere. Since the IDE has drawn it for you, that's fine, but you cannot then argue irrationally that this is because "one solution is always preferred" if another unifying level (integrate the IDE with the browser) makes it unacceptable to you. Everyone admires Goldilocks for knowing what she likes. However, Goldilocks would be an absurdist/comic figure if she pontificated logical fallacies based on the temperature of her soup -- "the soup is this temperature because that is the perfect temperature". That is not why the soup is that temperature.
