GUI based C Editor for Debian
 
Hi,

I need to write C programs under my Debian system. Right now I am using gedit as my text editor but it does not have all the features that I would like.

I need a program with following features:
1. Code color highlighting (like blue for comment, green for function, etc)
2. Details about the use of a function - For e.g. if I would like to know how to use malloc() function, I can just write/type malloc and double click or do something to get the descrioption
3. Debugging features.

Can anyone suggest some?

While I appreciate that Emacs is awesome, we do also have this sticky that you may have overlooked when you posted this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...e-ides-469623/
