    What are you using to write your code?

    Just thought it'd be cool to get an idea of what the members here are using for editors/IDEs. Have fun!

    As requested, this is a growing list of the aforementioned tools for you to compare and examine.

    Moved to General Discussions.

    My primary text editor is Geany. Other than that it depends on the situation.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    You know Turbo C is bad, right?
    As for I use, it's purely Visual Studio at this point.

    I am on linux so I use KATE, its like notepad; but you can turn on line numbers and see where the compiler tells you the errors are. It also has the ability to turn on a command line console at the bottom of the screen so you can compile and run the program without ever leaving KATE.

    I took a look at the screen shots for GEANY. I am gonna see if that package comes with my distribution, might be useful.

    You'll surely find it in the repos.

    btw.. I found Kate more flexible (compared to geany).I use Kate (with the terminal plugin ) when writing some quick one page code; else I generally go with Code::Blocks(and am thinking of moving to eclipse)

    Visual Studio most of the time.

    Used a lot of SlickEdit -- my favorite IDE -- when compiling for MinGW, but unfortunately work is again taking me away from C++.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Turbo C and Dev c++ are both wildly outdated and abandoned setups that nobody in their proper mind would use when fully up to date C compilers are available for free...

    I use Pelles C ... smorgasbordet - Pelles C ... forums at... Pelles C forum - Index
    This is a C-99 compliant compiler with a full featured IDE featuring a full suite of resource editors, windows headers and probably the best help file I've ever seen... It compiles both x86 and x64 code... and it's free.

    Yes I know that sounds like advertising, but really... Turbo C? WOW! Fred Flintstone had better tools than that!
    AndrewHunter and Yarin like this.
