Title: C++ Development
Post by: Daniel on April 01, 2009, 07:24:59 pm
I am learning C++. I am looking for a C++ development program. Should I go with KDevelop or is there something better?

That probably depends on personal taste. Here's a nice list of c++ development environments:

You can find a couple of those in the VL repo's, others may be found at either www.linuxpackages.net or www.slacky.eu .

I like kdevelop just fine though.

@Headacher: that's a good list - thanks!

@Daniel: do you have specific projects in mind, or just want to learn the language?  Low-level stuff (hardware oriented) versus high-level, like GUI's ... the first would tend to make pointers, arrays, and interrupts more important, whereas GUI's usually need specific Libraries... then there's the stuff in the middle - like database connections, web communications, number crunching ... again the libraries matter.

I like Kdevelop too - and also the QT tools from Troll Tech (because I'm a Troll too  ::) )

cheers,
