Hello, I am not trying to start a language war here. I am a c++ programmer, I wouldn't say I'm a pro, but I'm pretty good. It has been increasing clear to me that c++ is not as productive as languages such as c# and java.
I am looking to learn a second language and use it for things like making GUI applications quicker and easier than c++. The type of application that absolute speed of the application is not paramount, but making it quickly and easily is more important.
So it seems like for general purpose languages that strive for productivity, C# and Java are the top 2. Which is the easiest to use for making general purpose programs with GUI's?
Hi I have a game I am working on, it has a logger class. This class stores a string stream, and then dumps it to a text file when the application closes.
What I want to be able to do is have it open in some kind of text editor and have it reload automatically whenever the program changes the log file.
However if I try to use visual studio it always prompts that the file has changed would you like to reload it, this gets very annoying after hours of programming. I tried notepad, but it doesn't even know when the file changes and so you have to close it and reopen it again every time. I tried word pad, it grabs control of the file and doesn't let my application modify it. Libre office does the same thing.
So what text editor can I use that will not block the file from changing but also automatically update when the file contents change?
