I'm not sure this is in the correct place but I have used code::blocks before but am trying to find a solution that will allow me to write c++, ruby, python, java (being new to all of these) and also continue my web design i.e. html5/css.
I wanted to find ONE multi-purpose IDE to achieve the above so I can learn the software thoroughly and be able to do all my things in the one place.
So far I have seen:
1) Aptana 3
2) Netbeans 7
3) Eclipse (not sure about version)
If anyone could help me out with choosing, it would be most appreciated. I installed eclipse and aptana but got stuck VERY early on when trying to run my simple loops program (i.e. it wouldn't run without error, may have not set up correctly!). I will put in the time though and try again.
Two things to note:
(i) code::blocks with mingGW (no idea what that is) was a breeze and worked out of the box on win7 64-bit but I still want to learn how to use one of the above.
(ii) I am aware aptana is built on top of eclipse but I am also aware that there are differences
I just wondered (a) what you guys used and also (b) what is the standard for a professional company? I can't decide myself as I don't know yet which direction my programming is taking and whether the pros/cons apply to me at this very early stage.
I hope this makes sense and thanks in advance for any replies.
