C++

Sat Jan 04, 2014 6:52 pm

Hey,

I know this isn't the right place to post about Linux mint but in my opinion this is the most actively used Linux forum on the web so I figured I could post here.

Can anybody recommend a good c++ IDE for mint? I am trying to switch completely from windows 7 to Linux and this is the one thing stopping me. In windows I have traditionally used windows visual express which is very good and easy to use. I want to use predominantly Linux mint with a bit of sparky Linux thrown in. Any suggestions?

P.s I have installed eclipse in mint but I just dont like it.

Thanks In advance

OM

Do you have plain old GCC?

That runs from the command line (no funky IDE needed).

I thought the only choice of compiler would be gcc.

Do you mean choice of IDE?

code::blocks is a solid choice.
Runs on both linux and windows.
