C++ development environment - Suggestions?

One thing about Linux I'm coming to love is the ability to download a program as source and modify it. So far I've been modding by using gedit text editor and then simply re-making the source... Can anyone suugest a decent development environment in linux that will, for example, show a list of members when you type '.' or '->'? I've got a windows background so something close to Visual Studio in look and feel would be excellent.

Sorry, I can't help you regarding those specific features. But I can recommend emacs -- one of the most powerful editors around; It should be doable to implement the feature you request, but afaik no one has yet -- maybe this is your opportunity to learn elisp as well

wish you the best of luck finding the tool that's right for you,

There are some IDE's out there like Kdevelop, Anjunta and Eclipse but as jonaskoelker said i don't know if any of them has that particular feature, however there is certainly lots of stuff you will probably like ...

Just to set things right I sugest that you take a look at vim the best text editor available in the world and beyond ...
