DISCUSSION: Emacs for an IDE (1)


This thread is to discuss the article titled:
Emacs for an IDE (1)

Quote:
Brief Programmers newly making their way into the Linux world especially those who acquired their previous experience by working on Windows, seem to have a hard time figuring out how to start building applications for Linux. One question heard often here and there is "What is the best IDE for Linux?". A rather more specific question would be "Is there anything like MS Visual Studio for Linux?". Well,there are actually a bunch of IDEs for Linux. Best known are KDevelop and Anjuta. However these IDEs tend to be rather intimidating. They are a work in progress in so many aspects and getting one of them to work the way you want might be daunting. On the other hand whoever

Emacs for an IDE - more

Thanks for the pointer to the very cool speedbar, I hadn't seen that.

When you do part 2, you should mention debugging with gdb ("M-x gdb" to get started). Also, for c and java programmers there's a program called "xref" that is very helpful (c anyway is helpful, I can't speak for the java support). They also have a version for c++ which is pay-to-use.

I haven't ever seen tutorial info or learned how to use etags/ctags, I think that's relevant to c programmers too, don't know about c++ or other languages.

Yes, the tags feature is useful for c and a variety of other languages too. See the emacs manual's "Tags" node for more information. Ebrowse is another similar (but more powerful) feature for c++ programs specifically.
