Linux version of source insight


I am using Redhat Linux. But it is very difficult to go to each file and debug in a source code structure.

Is there any linux version of source insight like we have in windows?

Can anybody help me out?

You mean you want a debugger?
# yum search debugger
There are loads; most languages have their own debuggers designed, though a popular one is gdb; the gnu debugger. Its pretty intuitive after a bit of a learning curve. If you want a graphical one, there are front ends I believe such as DDD, or emacs works as a front end (Well, you can use debuggers in emacs at least)

if you are using ubuntu , just install "wine" a utility which can easily downloaded by synaptic packet manager and u can easily work on source insight.

Source Insight is an IDE, if Google serves me right.

There are at least 2 IDEs for Linux that I know of. Code::Blocks, which I've used, is actually multiplatform, and I've found it to be excellent, almost (but not quite) up to the standards of Visual C++ and other expensive editors. It's free. Note, it's only for C/C++, and maybe a few other languages (D, I think?).

The other, Eclipse, I have not used. It's often referred to as being a resource hog, from what I hear, but it works with many languages. Again, this is heresay... I have not used it myself.

Many programmers I know use only a text editor, makefiles, and GCC for their work, so it is certainly possible to do so, but if you don't want to, either of those tools should help.

Hope this helps!
