What IDE do you use?

hey there,

I just wanted to do an informal survey for my blog on what some of the popular IDE's you guys use. If you have any info, it would be great if you said why you chose it above others (say, why Eclipse is better than visual studio or vice versa) also mention what language you use in that IDE.

I have used several IDE's but I haven't fully used their resources. I have used DevC++, Eclipse for C++ and for Java, and of course Visual Studio. I like Eclipse and VS the best, but I can't really say which is better because I haven't thought to compare them. It is annoying that VS doesn't make your brackets for you tho...

I only use it for building GUIs (haven't found anything in Eclipse that I like). I personally hate the code editor in it. I merely build the GUIs, then take the code over to Eclipse to get rid of all of the generated crap, and then I code all of the rest of the app.

Its great for GUI building though.

Re: What IDE do you use?

It depends... When I want to actually program and do something meaningful I use a C++ compiler ( typically Borland C++Builder ) or Dev-CPP... If I want to make something for my college because I have to, I use Visual Basic.NET 2008.

If you want to know why, it is because Visual Basic is for monkeys who's greatest struggle they can handle in life is where to organize code so it looks more pretty. As far as using Visual C++ ( Calling it C++ is an absolute joke by the way ), it is NOT C++ despite what you may think, it is absolutely different and pretty much they decided to do whatever the hell they wanted to do with this language and turn it into something just as retarded as C# or VB. So, since I call it a different language entirely then let's just say I absolutely hate that language.

I like Borland C++Builder because it has features that allow me to be the lazy man and not have to type out my GUI as well as also giving me the options to make event handlers / etc. very simply and easily. But the best part is that everything is pretty much just plain C++, headers written in C++ can be completely used in Borland with no problems as where VC++ is off on it's own thing in it's own place.

- This is all just my opinion from my own experience, I already know what others say / think .

Re: What IDE do you use?

eclipse. its open source and you can make plugins for it. In my class the prof handed out style templates so every one's code would be formated similarly. I use the AVR plugin for AVR microcontroller programming. You can use eclipse for many different languages. I like it more than netbean and notepad++
