Is there a good Makefile-generating IDE for Linux?


Hello, everybody. I'm just getting into C and C++ programming, and I'm looking for an integrated development environment for Linux that will generate Makefiles for me, and besides that be functional and easy to use.

What do you recommend?

Hi,

You can use KDevelop for generating C/C++ projects which includes the directory structure and all the makefiles.
Another excellent tool is Anjuta (www.anjuta.org) which is similar to KDevelop but has more features.

consider ant

I work on mixed C/C++ and Java apps. We use ant to build everything.

So you might want to consider IDEs that use ant rather than make.

NetBeans 4 is one example.

Thanks for the reply, JuddRogers.

I'll keep that in mind. I haven't played with ant much, but maybe I'll give it a try.

eclipse is another multi-language IDE that has C/C++ support. Look for the eclipse CDT project. They have a 'managed make' where the ide handles all of the make file issues as well as a 'standard make' mode where you write your own.

I also just downloaded and have started checking out an eclipse plugin called KDE-eclipse. It is oriented towards developing KDE apps with eclipse, but it also can integrate with the gnu autotools (which is one thing that eclipse really lacks).
