No idea, if this forum is the right location for your question, but a lot of people use pure and simple editors, like VI, emacs or joe. Others prefer whole IDEs like eclipse

Hi,

I have used Eclipse for some other languages,  and I like the idea of having one IDE for various tasks (I use Eclipse for Python, Perl, for some Texas Instruments DSP tasks), so I'll give you a hint to use it also for c++ development  - although I haven't used it yet for this purpose :

http://www.eclipse.org/cdt/

HTH,

regards,

Bulek.
Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Another note,

I just found out the awesome secret of porting the gui over x. What does that mean? well it means I can download the sourcetree on my core, install codeblocks, and be able to use it from any computer capable of running ssh on my lan! Big help as before i was trying to read code with vi...and i cant use that for anything besides config files.

There are almost certainly instructions for porting x over ssh with your ssh program of choice. just google it. I just didn't know it was possible until being enlightened in irc :)

VIM as IDE - http://mamchenkov.net/wordpress/2004/05/10/vim-for-perl-developers/

See my attached config if you're interesting:
 - F3 - check PHP script syntax;
 - F4 - check Perl script syntax;
 - F5 - run Perl script;
 - F8 - show/hide tags list (functions/methods/classes). You need the package ctags for that.
