What's your preferred programming environment
 
That's the question of the day. What kinds of tools do you like when programming? I'm talking about anything from fancy IDEs like KDevelop or Ajunta to cat - >foo.c I've been playing with KDevelop lately, but I'm finding I have to fight with it too much, so I'm considering going back to the good old xterm & vim.

What are your preferences? And why?

vim /nano- can spend time doing what i have to do than how to.

micxz 10-01-2003 06:09 PM

Indeed a fine editor - a true IDE before the term IDE was invented. What other editor comes with a Tower of Hanoi puzzle and Eliza?

I'm too lazy to learn it though. Too much Escape-Meta-Alt-Control-Shift.

I'm noticing that so far, nobody's voting for the spiffy IDEs. Maybe simpler is better. I did most of my CS degree coding using an xterm and vi.

Sure.

Anyway, I've been trying qtdesigner a little bit, just little programs,
what do you people think about it? I mean, using it for bigger projects.

hmm, don't program much, still learning, but i prefer emacs as it has the ability to invoke gcc

"Too much Escape-Meta-Alt-Control-Shift."

A few defines with global-set-key in the .emacs file takes care of that, I have all the frequently used functions defined to F1-F12 and the keypad keys. I've found there's no quicker/easier way to do power-editing, including pulldown menus & icon buttons for functions.

When I first worked on Linux, the local gurus introduced me to VI and I've been using it ever since(say, 2 years). But now, I'm trying to get comfortable to emacs...The only thing I don't like about emacs is, autosaving feature...creates ~ files and I hate them. Emacs is one true hack and Richard Stallman is the last of the legendary AI Lab Hackers. Hats off to RMS.

Vim too creates ~ (backup) files unless :set nobackup is specified. I dont use Emacs but i'm 100% sure it has a option to disable saving backups if they bother you..
So yeah, aterm and Vim! (For minimal programming i do that is...)

I've been enjoying playing around in KDevelop a lot in the past couple of months...but for quick and dirty stuff I love using Vim.

As for QT-Designer, its not bad...I'm liking it, but then I'm only toying around with it right now...not doing anything serious.

you can collect them to a folder under your home like that

;;save everything to a folder
(setq
backup-by-copying t ; don't clobber symlinks
backup-directory-alist
'(("." . "~/.saves")) ; don't litter my fs tree
delete-old-versions t
kept-new-versionhs 6
kept-old-versions 4
version-control t) ; use versioned backups

I've moved the Windows way and use VS.NET mostly for my C/C++ needs. *shock*

Started using Eclipse and TextPad for Java.

When I'm working on GUI code I like a spiffy IDE like Anjuta, but when no GUI is involved, or I'm hacking TeX, I use emacs.

Warm tombstone pizza to my left, large glass of coke to my right, camel filters tucked under the right corner of my monitor within easy reach, low intensity ambient lighting.
Alternatly, little debbie fudge rounds and a huge pot of coffee, etc

Ok :)
