from dev-c++ mingw to netbeans cygwin
I didn't think there would be a difference. I always thought C++ was C++ and that's why everyone used it. Apparently that isn't the case. I can't stand Dev-C++'s editor or the random build errors that come with projects such as DevIL. So, I figured I'd try Netbeans, since I really like their editor. Well, apparently cygwin doesn't even have iostream?? I don't know what is going on, but absolutely nothing is working. I did everything the netbeans website says to do and after I did that I don't even have the headers I need. So I copied the headers from dev-c++'s include into netbeans' and at least I have a few includes working. For some reason most of them still are not working. So, can anyone tell me what is up and what I need to do to fix this? Also, I can't find anywhere where it allows you to link to a DLL like Dev-C++ does. Does anyone know how to do that?
Would I be better off just not using netbeans and getting a better editor? Does anyone know of an editor that is as nice as netbeans that will actually recognize datatypes (For some reason netbeans is telling me that bool is not a type and false and true are not keywords. It is also trying to tell me that namespaces don't exist at all.).
After writing that last paragraph, I'm starting to think netbeans isn't worth it unless someone knows how to fix all this and it is easy. Also, I'd really appreciate it if you could recommend some nice editors. Thank you.
