ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Good IDE in linux, where are they??
M$ 've created a good IDE (VS .Net) to persuade
programmer to write program for their OS.
What do we have to against them.
Do you use any good IDE? Give me a list.
In my opinion, a good IDE must have these
features at least:
+ Automatic word (variable name, function name etc.)
+ Edit code (Include design GUI), compile, debug, make
the software ready to be installed on another PC, within
+ Support at least two language (C and Perl etc.)
+ Detail document and sample on the web or disc.
Did you try KDE? Have a look at KDE apps. You can configure them the way that NO ONE win app allows you. E.g.: shortcuts. It's one of the reasons why I prefer KDE. E.g., I like to save a file pressing F2 It's much more convinient than <Ctrl+S>... for me. Especially, my favourite KDE app is KWrite. Much more convinient than Notepad or Wordpad. And... Opera, of course. I've never seen a better web-browser. It loads htmls not as others... even firefox. I think IE6 is much more convinient than Firefox though... Just cuz it's an avarage browser, like mozilla, netscape... Ok, I shut up.
But Fluxbox has very convinient main menu... and eats very few resources, but can do much MORE than, e.g., also eating little win98...
Why is everybody so caught up with IDEs anyways? To me they're mostly hype. You can do all of what you mentioned with the exception of drag-and-drop gui design with an editor like VIM, which totally rocks; and the more you learn about VIM, the more it rocks. I must admit there's a learning curve to VIM though, as is the case with anything worth learning
Just cause I'm curious: are there any IDEs that actually let the programmer move about the text being edited with the same ease as in VIM? or do they pretty much limit you to moving around with the cursor keys and a character at a time?

I think that was a Joke :P
TruongAn, you can find good IDEs for Linux like Borland Kylix's one. Actually that's a matter of taste, I found Java NetBeans to be a wonderfull IDE for Java. I really enjoy using jEdit too for PHP, HTML and Java stuff. The problem actually is that there are so many that you take a lot to find one for your taste, while, in Windows, you have only ONE, so there's no choice, just keep in the production chain and you'll be a monkey coder (I don't pretend to offense anyone, it's the reality :P).
I've never seen VS.Net, but I'm pretty sure it's worser than KDE. I just see how awful XP Style is even comparing with KDE3.2... Also I'm sure 4.0 will be much better than Windows 2010
And it supports my Russian just fine (GNOME does even better). And I didn't need to read documentation: both KDE & GNOME have their Contol Centers where all is as easy as a mouse click.
And "auto word complete"... shell suppots this (it completes paths and cmds). Or may be you're about MS Office? I think (but never used) StarOffice is similar.
Every Linux thing is better than LoseDOS' one: either shell, or IDE.
Borland Kylix might be the better IDE for linux
supports pascal and C++
Generally works,functions and performs the same as IDEs in MS windows though there are some differences in the availablelity of visual or non-visual components between the free and comercial editions of Kylix.
The download size of the Open Kylix (the free edition one) is around 90mb and you might need a fast PC( ?at least a P4,526mb ram?)if you want fast IDE performance.
