    Exclamation Is there any IDE with a compiler for C++ that just works???

    Hello all.

    I've been working with Arduino type boards for a couple of years now. I've been using the Arduino IDE, but would really like to move onto an IDE that has a bit more organization to it. I've tried several (including VS Code and Eclipse), but it seems everything I've tried or read about requires extensive knowledge of (from what I can tell) high level programming just to set up the friggin' thing. My question is this:

    Is there any IDE with compiler for C++ that will just work after installation? It's hard to believe that there isn't considering how long C++ has been around, but I can't seem to find one. If anyone has a suggestion, I would appreciate it.

    I suppose it depends on your definition of "just works".

    Binary releases - Code::Blocks
    Grab "codeblocks-20.03mingw-setup.exe" since this is the combined IDE and compiler installation.

    Both of these are just IDEs.
    Neither include a compiler "out of the box", so yeah, hoops to jump through.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
