Doesn't Debian Wheezy has a graphical text editor for c++ ?
I can't find any preinstalled grapphical text editor at all in debian wheezy.
I want one like Kedit i had in kubuntu.
I installed vim and vim-gtk for the graphic interface along the c extension highlight exuberant-ctags., but where do i find it to run its graphical version? I manage to execute the graphical vim only though console vim -f file.cpp
To be honest, i don't use editors very much and when i do, it's only quick stuff, so i tend to just use nano or vi. When i do desire to use a graphical editor, and i had both installed; i think i preferred kwrite, but i get the two mixed up, and i never explored there feature set so take that for what it's worth. Good luck, try both and see which one you like best.
The thing about vim (and gvim, which is just a gui shell for vim) is that it's not a traditional, notepad-style text editor. It's much more than that.
You certainly can't say it doesn't have keystrokes at least, because that's the whole point of it--everything can be done through the keyboard only! And it not only does it have copy/paste, it has a whole slew of registers you can use to store text in. And yes, it has auto-tabbing and much, much, much more.
It's true that the learning curve is so steep as to feel like you'll never understand it, but when you do overcome it, you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
