i'm looking for an ide to program in c/c++. eclipse has a plugin for that, but even though i have not tried out how good it is, one thing for sure is eclipse is still slow because it's java. what does every one around here use? any suggestions for a good c/c++ ide?
You're sure Eclipse is slow even though you haven't tried it? (or did I misunderstand you?) If you have a reasonably fast system the speed is usually pretty good. It's not like an IDE needs to be blazingly fast, since all the heavy work is being done by the compiler anyway.
i have used eclipse on java projects. a few of you mentioned vi and gdb. while i can agree with vi, it was a pain for me the one time i used gdb to debug a Lisp interpreter project: constantly having to type 30+ characters to see the values of variables in a struct->union->struct... in a linked list while i could have clicked clicked clicked.
