    devc++ ide

    anyone else have problems with how DevC++ indents?

    Several times it will indent way too far, other times not far enough.

    Then when code gets copied and pasted the indentation is all off.

    Yes, I don't like the way it indents either. I ended up switching to a different compiler for that along with other reasons, but it is sort of annoying. Anyways, you get what you pay for.

    Yeah VIM is much better as a text editor. Triple now that I figured out how to get it to only use spaces

    I haven't used it for a long time I do remember there was something wrong.
    Just use (x)emacs in a cygwin enviroment. Or in a real *nix enviroment.

    I've always had problems with Dev-C++'s indentions. The editor in Dev-C++ is horrible anyway. It's funny how you have to cross your fingers that parameter info comes up for your functions, and members come up for your classes. The class browser is utter crap as well.

    I use Anjuta. It's the slickest, cleanest, IDE I've used. It was horribly glitchy in its early stages, but it's very stable right now.
