If it is possible to use a text editor and a compiler to do C++, please I'll read a 10,000 page tutorial over keep on fighting these IDE's. It would seem to me it's possible, just most rely on the IDE to take care of certain things that could likely be done fairly simply in one's code or with an additional library file.
The reason you hate the C++ IDE's is that you haven't read that 10 000 page tutorial that explains how C++ compilation works. You don't yet know why you have to jump so many loops in an IDE, but you have to set up those same things on the command line and it's even harder. You just don't know what you are doing but learning to do it by hand could actually be a great learning experience. You would learn why you have to do the things you do in IDE.
Last time I programmed C++(years ago) I had to pray I would get the right settings and libraries and it would still work on other computers too. C++ is complicated and I didn't have time to learn everything about compiling and linking with C++. I wasn't using an IDE either. It's not the IDE's, it's the language(or it's compilation model).
