What C++ Dev. Software Do You Use.

9 posts in this topic

Please forgive me for wondering in over my head I'm well aware I don't belong here but I have a question. I'm interested in getting my feet wet in C++ and wanted to know what dev. software you guys use. I attempted to search for this question and failed tho I'm sure it is out there and I just couldn't find it. Thank you very, very, much for your time.

MS Visual Studio for anything Win32 and .NET. For Linux, VIM is the tool of choice, or MCEDIT if I feel like compiling it. Old habits die hard.

MS Visual C++ Express is great; it's a piece of cake to set it up for Win32 and it's free. In fact all of the Express editions are stellar for getting one's feet wet.

I've been playing around with the next version of MSVS, codename Orcas. I must say it's decent, if bloated.

I've played around with some of the free IDE/compilers out there for Win32 in the past. The MinGW suite is decent. For .NET I like SharpDevelop. Generally, though, I stick with the name brand stuff.

I own a legit copy of MS Visual Studio 2005 but have not the slightest clue as to how to get started with it. I also own VB6 and have done a bit with it but am really wanting to take the plunge into C++.

I use both Dev C++ and Borland C++.

I love the amount of expansions that are available for Dev C++, but Borland is the professional choice and has a lot more functions. Using Borland GUI's ar e infinitely more simple to make.

Eclipse with C++ plugin... CDT I think its called. Eclipse is an extremely good developement enviroment for a goodly number of languages. It takes a little while to figure things out since its not really for the uninitiated, but I think its worth the overhead.
