You could first tell us what features makes GreenHills MULTI IDE valuable for you.

Post RE: Free Languages

Hello, all! I noticed no mention of a couple of things, so thought I'd add them.

First, Gambas ( should impress most folks. It's a VB-like app for Linux, with most of the same tools. It has support for various databases in the GUI interface, has a nice coding interface, with intellisense-like capabilities, and has a package builder built-in. Overall, very nice. Linux only, though I do think it works with cygwin.

Second, a fairly new project is in the mix. Dabo (, I believe) is a Python RAD tool, written, mostly, by a couple of old hats from the FoxPro community. Windows/Linux, and very nice.

The list here could practically go on forever, so I hesitated (for about 2 seconds) to post this message. But it does give me a chance to introduce myself to the group. I am, for all intents and purposes, a Linux novice, though I have been working with Linux of some sort for several years now. Currently, I am using Ubuntu, and for the most part love it. My favorite distro is SuSE, so will most likely jump back to it before all is said and done. What I love most about Linux is one of the major reasons I love FoxPro: the community.

Anyway ... sorry for being long-winded, and for getting off-topic there. Anyone needs anything from me, don't hesitate to drop me a line. Later.

LEDS: an IDE for the currently infantile D Programming Language. A windows version is in the works, but it is free, open-source and available for Linux as of now. It is under development

I've been a C programmer, but now I have to write in C++. And now I need a little more options, supported by my editor. I like vim but I need:

1) Auto completion with Ctrl+Space.

2) When I have an object from some class and I type the name of the object and a dot (.) after it to see a falling menu with all the methods and variables in the class. For example if I have a class Student with a method Print() and an object S from that class, when I type "S." I want to see a falling menu with all the methods from the class including Print().

3) I want to compile fast and easy. Let's say I have a simple C++ file and I want to run it. I don't want to be obliged to create a huge project with 15 files in it, just to compile the .cpp. By the way I have no problem to compile the sorce in the console using g++, but the above two should work!

OK, the third thing is not that important. So, what would you recommend?
By the way, I'm a Kubuntu user.

Kate for small projects and Kdevelop for anything bigger

I was just browsing the links at the top, and it seems that MinIDE has moved homepage, from to (I think).

Eric3 is a good python IDE, at least I thought it was better than KDevelop for making python code.

Question, have any Lispers been able to get Jabberwocky to work for them? The installer just keeps freezing on me after the first screen.

Guys, I'm going to add another category -- programmers' editors (not full IDEs). I'd like some suggestions there as well.
