Hello, I before I start a flame war, I will tell you all that I want just names and something like a salespitch for your favorite IDE. I am looking for an easy learning curve for someone who is familiar with MSVC++, ie me. I just got a job here at work and we are developing under linux which I have never done before. Would love it if you guys could inform me of some good IDEs I could use. Dwiel

Might wanna ask the guys you work with so you can easiliy give files to each other.

The only ones I''ve used are Anjuta and KDevelop. KDevelop is quite similar to MSVC.

Interim: VI or Vim, is not what this person is looking for.

"I am looking for an easy learning curve for someone who is familiar with MSVC++,"

Sorry VI is not this. It is an excelent editor, but easy to learn all of its power is not easy.

Tazzel3D: I''d suggest googleing or look aroung source forge. Look at some screen shots and descriptions.

One set back to being in the Linux/Unix crowd, no sense of humor.

Ask the same question on a Linux or Unix message board and expect to hear the war erupt:

"VIM vs Emacs".

I guess I need to pass out laughing gas to get a joke through =)

But since we''re serious:

http://www.linuxworld.com/linuxworld/lw-1999-06/lw-06-vcontrol_1.html

Good article about some of the most famous developers and their tools (again not an answer, but interesting.)

Codewarrior (about 150 bucks I think):

And here''s probably the best, a search from Freshmeat.net!

http://freshmeat.net/browse/65/?topic_id=65

There are about 119 responses, I would create a freshmeat.net account and then sort by rating to find the most "user approved".

No, it''s a setback of being around Unix users without enough sense of history. The second I saw that I was laughing, and I was expecting an "Emacs or death!" follow-up post. I guess not.

CodeWarrior is a good option if you''re looking to pay for the IDE. Eclipse is another option, though I''ve never used it and can''t pitch it. Generally speaking, Linux IDEs suck compared to MSVC. Well, very few IDEs hang well with MSVC...

KDevelop is probably the most similar to MSVC (much like the rest of KDE is very similar to Windows, but that''s a whole new thread).

heh, true, true. =)

Funny thing is, how you can get die hard Emac and Vi users to argue why they are IDEs. =)

Used to work with a Sun admin in Manhatten, just had to mention some problem with Emacs and he would be busy and red faced for hours. -)

You know what they say, "Emacs is a great desktop environment. It just needs a decent editor!"

I use Eclipse for Java/J2EE development here at work. It is by far the best IDE for Java based applications I''ve used. I''ve also used JBuilder, but Eclipse is free and far better. As for C/C++ work, I''ve used Anjuta, KDevelop, and C-Forge. C-Forge is probably the most powerful, but the ugliest of the bunch since it uses Motif. It also supports the most languages. Anjuta and KDevelop are very similiar, but as stated above, KDevelop is very much like MSVC.

i quite like Kate (not really an IDE, but an editor), comes with the KDE base package. the latest version has got that expanding and collapsing of classes and functions that''s in the latest version of MSVC, which is pretty sweet. also has a side panel where you can browse through your directory tree to open files, which is useful. i don''t actually use it anymore cos i like using emacs but that''s another story.
