Re: What's your tools for C++ dev?

It's great, thx very much, Felix.

It's detail enough, I'm checking them out.

Hello Michael,

First of all you have to install:

manpages-dev - Manual pages about using GNU/Linux for development
manpages-posix-dev - Manual pages about using a POSIX system for development
stl-manual - C++-STL documentation in HTML
libstdc++6-doc - The GNU Standard C++ Library v3 (documentation files)

Then you have to find an editor that fits your requirements. There are tons of editors... nowadays I'm using an X editor and I prefer multi platform editors because I work on Windows and Linux and I want to remember just a unique set of shortcuts. My favourite editors are:

These two works on Linux and Windows
scite - Lightweight GTK-based Programming Editor
geany - A fast and lightweight IDE

Maybe you want to use a bigger editor:
eclipse - Extensible Tool Platform and Java IDE
eclipse-cdt - C/C++ Development Tools for Eclipse

It is not "straightforward" to configure eclipse to work with C++. however the cdt plugin for eclipse is REALLY powerful (I've not used it for 1 or 2 years), however it has powerful features like "refactoring".

There are many other editors / IDE like:

kdevelop - An IDE for Unix/X11
kate - advanced text editor for KDE
anjuta - A GNOME development IDE for C/C++

If you do a small research over the internet you will find much more editors... that's the list I have in my head right now... but there are many other editors.

Hi all:

I'm starting the C++ Developer work on linux, no GUI app involved.

Could you tell me what the tools you are working with?

I'm trying with g++ and vim. Is there a package containing the help doc for the library API, like the MSDN on Windows.

Thanks for your helps.
