#! noobie needs suggestions for programming C++

Considering this is my first distro I've used more than 5 minutes, I need a supplementary environment to work on C++ programs for school.

How would one go about this in linux? I'm used to Visual Studio.

Re: #! noobie needs suggestions for programming C++

IDEs on linux... umh, its not something I use, I don't like c++ but I use C a lot, gcc is a gnu C compiler, that I believe supports C++, as for IDE's like visual studio (that are in my opinion too heavy and a mess) I don't know any at least for linux, I just use nano or vi as an editor and gcc as a compiler, if I want to debug stuff, I use my limited skills with gdb.

EDIT
Came across this while searching for stuff http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/cxx0x.html seems to be up to date, maybe you want to give a read.

Re: #! noobie needs suggestions for programming C++

There are several C/C++ IDEs available for Linux (like most things in Linux). This list might give you some ideas for what to check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison … .2FC.2B.2B

I don't write C++ code, but two IDEs I see mentioned a lot are Code::Blocks and NetBeans.

You can't make anything idiot proof because idiots are so ingenious.

I don't write C++ code, but I have heard that many people use Code::Blocks. http://www.codeblocks.org/

yes, i use codeblocks for debugging. it can be similar vs .more that that if you new for *nix environment try to learn more about make , configure , linking ,types of libs ..

Hello monobus. I am surprised nobody has yet mentioned Geany, the syntax highlighting code editor that comes out the box with Crunchbang. Hit Super-e to start it  glasses

Re: #! noobie needs suggestions for programming C++

If you are familiar with Eclipse there is a C++ plugin for it.

The gnu toolchain is more about makefiles, if you're interested in learning them  big_smile
Personally I use emacs; another favorite in the community is vim.
