    Linux editors and compilers

    Hi, I was wondering what a good compiler and editor for Linux would be to code in? I have just finally installed Linux and I would like to start programing in Linux instead of Windows. I assume for the compiler I should use GCC but I don't know about editors. Ok thanks for the help.

    Like my signature but if you need IDE you can also try `anjuta' with gnome. I myself use console.
    slackware 10.0; kernel 2.6.7
    gcc 3.4.0; glibc 2.3.2; vim editor

    you can use Cursed GTK (http://zemljanka.sourceforge.net/cursed/) to be able to use a GTK based IDE such as Anjuta on the command line.

    i use vim with gcc.

    well there's always Gabe (i think)
    the thing that comes with Gnome that makes a framework for GTK+ applications.

    I still say
    vim & gcc -console
    kdevelop & kdevelop -X (with KDE)

    If you are used to editing in the pine mailer, the pico editor works nicely. A lot of vi people here. I use emacs and gcc - not that I don't like vi, but only because I bought a book on emacs, and now that I am used to it, I kind of like it.

    emacs is good if your used to it but I like the sheer speed of getting into vi and writing my program then getting out to compile, its all about the simplicity and speed for me. Emacs requires multiple combinations of keys to save and quit plus it takes longer to load because of curses drawing the menus, but im only talking about miliseconds more, not really a big difference, the real difference comes when your trying to save and exit

    vi:
    ctrl+c
    :wq [enter]

    I forgot how to do it in emacs its like
    ctrl+x ctrl+s ctrl+x ctrl+x
    or something....
    I only use emacs on X if I use it at all but mostly I just use vi and KDevelop
