Which one of THESE three is the best IDE for a C++ newbie?


I want to know which is easiest to learn to use and also if all of them can be used to accomplish the same thing eg - to build a static library.

1. CODEBLOCKS or

2. ANJUTA or

3. JGRASP.

Hi -

The "best IDE" is a command prompt, make and GDB.

IMHO .. PSM

I would refer to last years Poll..

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...e-year-610217/


Looks like Eclipse is the winner by a landslide..
Anjuta is the only one you mentioned that even earned a spot in the poll.

If you're on KDE I would suggest KDevelop as being excellent. Eclipse is Java based, slow and I find the perspective switching a bit of a pain.

i installed eclipse and IT WAS SLOW - taking over 2 minutes to open (i only have 128 MB RAM + run Gnome) - I removed it immeadiately - even though the install took over 1 hour on mandriva.

For whatever it's worth, the very best commonly used C++ compiler is Microsoft's Visual Studio. Microsoft offers a perfectly functional version of Visual Studio as a free download on their web site:

http://www.microsoft.com/Express/

Of course, Visual Studio is limited to Windows-only.

As far as a cross-platform, cross-language, portable, general-purpose development IDE, I'd have to strongly recommend Eclipse. It's not necessarily my personal preference for every job, but it's undeniably got one of the largest, most thriving communities in the world. Helped, in no small part, by strong support from IBM:

Hi, ive just started using codeblocks - it seems so easy and intuitive. Ive singned up to the codeblocks forum and i think im going to stick with it.
I was originally running console programs in xterm, but it was so easy to change the console window for output to gnome terminal.
I recommend you post your problem to the codeblocks forum cos there are always good threads there.
