ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You are right Randux, it costs much bludy bucks, but if we gon a purchase its linux version, we also have to spend much more bludy bucks, so the better option is to go with the free IDE, and that is why i am looking for the free IDE.
You could first tell us what features makes GreenHills MULTI IDE valuable for you.
Hello, all! I noticed no mention of a couple of things, so thought I'd add them.
First, Gambas (gambas.sourceforge.net) 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 (dabodev.com, 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.
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.
