C++ IDE (GNU/free) with good DEBUG for Windouz ??

Recommended Posts

can anyone advise a nice free C++ IDE for Windows that would have a debug tool with memory window and digestible watch window (like in MSVC)?? I checked few now: . MinGW Developer Studio; . Visual-MinGW; . Dev-C++. though they do allow step-by-step debug, their variable watch tools really suck, and there is no Memory watch window at all. might it be because of compiler (all the above use Mingw/gcc 3.3.1) being poor (I mean mingw doesn't support memory watch)?? I need to see what's happening in memory! byte by byte. please suggest anything.

Microsoft has a free version of their C++ tools

I find Microsoft's debug envirionment preferable to other IDE's like metrowerks as well as free options like Visual-MinGW.

Infact when programming on OS X or linux I find myself missing Visual Studio, better not tell the Slashdot crowd that:)

Cheers
Chris

wow!.. I didn't know MS is doing something for free... .i bet it's a limited offer...

unfortunately due to licensing issues I cannot use any microsoft stuff here... I am asking is there any other IDE than microsoft visual studio or metrowerks codewarrior???

Metrowerks really suck. I can't even compile a 'hello world'..
in CodeWarrior how do I specify a compiler to use??

You sound very ignorant.

Just thought you should know.

Try using the personal version of borland cbuilderx. It's free and supports the borland compiler, and mingw on windows.
