I'm putting together some SDL tutorials and I want to expand the setting up SDL tutorial and the SDL extension library tutorial. This is currently the compilers/IDEs I plan to cover: Windows ------------------ Dev C++ (done) Code::Blocks Borland MS Visual C++ 6.0 MS Visual C++.NET Linux ------------------ KDevelop Anjuta Eclipse Code::Blocks g++ command line Mac OS X ------------------ XCode Eclipse CodeWarrior g++ command line Is there any ones I'm forgetting? Also if I didn't cover your OS of choice, sorry these are the only OSes I have access to.

If you're covering IDEs seperately you may want to consider both Borland C++ Builder and Borland's command line tools as two different entities.

Don't waste your time with Codewarrior. It's dead. Also, be sure that a person who follows your instructions will create Universal binaries by default.

Eclipse with the CDT plugin?


IIRC, the CDT plugin only works on x86 machines.


Which is like saying Windows only works on x86 machines. Pretty offtopic. And I'd be suprised, given that it's coded in Java, and does all it's C++ compiling/debugging using external tools. Could be wrong though.

I mentioned it because the OP listed "Eclipse" under OS X (Eclipse itself works on OS X, but not the CDT plugin). On a second look, it appears that it works on machines other than x86s, but it doesn't work on PPCs.
