    I need a good IDE that facilitates the use of make.

    What's a good C/C++ IDE that allows the use of make instead of some built in crap? I've tried CB, it allows use of make, but I don't like how it works with my src directory structure.

    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.

    Use your favourite IDE and invoke make from the commandline would be the most obvious approach. If you want to i can give you my own developed script that generates a makefile for you (its a constant work in progress but thus far it has served me great and i havent had to change it in a while). This of course assumes you are using linux (script is a shellscript)

    Salem, that list doesn't say anything about make integration.

    No, my makefile is and has to be hand made. Thanks though.

    CodeBlocks does, according to their FAQ. What is also good is CodeBlocks, by design, lets you choose a toolchain.

    What built-in crap are you referring to. Most of the 'built-in crap' hides you from all the 'command line crap'. However the raw power is still there if you know how to use your IDE.
