C++ Development?


I have two old RH (6?) boxes in my office, and was thinking about upgrading them so I can relearn C++. Any distro recommendations, dev tools (Eclipse?), or ??? I've uses Xemacs for years, mostly with JDE for Java dev work. I've screwed around with Eclipse a bit, is there decent support for C++?

I'm not averse to trying out other vendor's tools, as long as they are free since I am doing this to learn, not make $$$. Of course I wouldn't mind if eventually my edification resulted in enumeration.

I think the word you wanted there was "remuneration"

Just about any modern distro would serve the purpose. gcc is the de facto C/C++ development tool; you can get any number of IDEs or editors. I'm not familiar with Eclipse, but I've heard good things about Anjuta (a C++ IDE) and KDevelop. Emacs and Vim will certainly do a lot in the way of syntax highlighting and could even serve as an IDE, if you know your way around them well enough.

Of course after I posted this I discovered the "Windoze to Linux" mapping page. I browsed the dev tools and ran across Kylix (sp?). I seemed to recall that was a Borland tool, so I went to borland.com and downloaded their free edition (90 MBytes, crikey!).

I might post a review in a few weeks if I get around to it.
