    Updateing my IDE program

    Hello all

    I went to use my Netbeans 8.0x program the other day and it said "no compiler installed" so since it was a old program, I thought why not get the next more up to date later version, then I can install the compiler after I get that newer version installed.

    So downloaded the newer version from a friends place (because wireless data costs the earth about $15 per gig of data), then I uninstalled the older version, when I went to install the new version released it was not a *.ZIP or *.EXE file but in fact a *.SH file I think [drats]

    "Why do we get played around with so often?"


    So anyway now I am thinking, since I have to go back to my friends place to download "something" why not ask this group if there is something better.


    IS THERE A IDE C/C++ IDE PROGRAM BETTER THAN NETBEANS 8.1(WITH COMPILER INCLUDED IN THE DOWNLOAD.)

    I was about to download the program from "Bloodshed" that seems to have the compiler program included in the 14 megabyte download (unlike the Netbeans 8.1 that is 118 Megabytes of download)

    it's all personal preference. Depends on what O.S you're using. Typically, I prefer to use a note pad and a terminal. TextWrangler on a mac and something like NotePad++ for windows. As for a compiler, visual studio or xCode would allow you to use the c99 or c11 compilers that come with them. xCode and visual studio are pretty good IDEs if you prefer to use an IDE.

    I don't know if it's "better" than Netbeans, but Code Blocks is a popular IDE that can come bundled with a compiler (GCC/MinGW).

    Download Qt/MinGW edition. It includes the MinGW compiler and Qt Creator, a pretty good IDE for C and C++.
