c++.chat - Favorite editor

I've used Ultraedit, but I think it's somewhat cluttered. We use MS 
Visual C++ in school, and I really like that editor, but it's a wee bit 
expensive for me.

So my question is: which editor do you use when coding for with Digital 
Mars?

SciTE from the Scentilla project, works under Win32 (natively) and GTK+ Unix. It may look a bit stupid at first, but take a look at its configuration files: you can enable a cool toolbar, a multi-tab mode, and code folding! A few hundred options to tweak on. And it loads much faster than many far simpler editors - takes less than 1/4 a second on my 6-year-old notebook. Thus it is my default "F4" Editor in Total Commander. Under Windows, you can also attach a simple project manager to it. And if you figure out what you dislike about it, you can roll your own through Fox Toolkit or wxWindows, which both contain a Scintilla component. :) Or simly write a plug-in to SciTE. www.scintilla.org -eye

I use SciTE as well, and maintain a distribution for it that has the

The other day I made the source code changes so that Scintilla and SciTE
will compile natively in DMC++.  It did require that I patch DM with a few
libraries and headers from the MS Platform SDK; and to simplify maintenance
I used Borland's make rather than smake or the IDDE - that way I can very
easily maintain the makefiles as a patch against the Borland scite.mak and
scintilla.mak.

Well NOT using the idde I use http://www.MultiEdit.com a lot on win32. But it is not free. If you are going to spend money I would recommand the DigitalMars CD.

Currently, I use Visual Studio .NET 2002 but at work we write Java using 
Eclipse and it is just such an amazing editor. The code completion is 
flawless and the neat feature of holding CTRL when over a class/method 
or variable turns it into a hyperlink you can click and goto the 
definition. Plus a host of clever refactoring tools (renaming, 
extracting selected text as a method) makes all other so called 
programmers editors look featureless.

However, there is nothing around like it for C++. Together with M$ 
charging a fortune for an optimizing compiler which they never seem to 
update has got me looking at building my own environment. I'm just 
experimenting with Digital Mars at the moment (already bought the CD :) 
but it could be ideal as the compiler for my project. For Digital Mars, 
HTML, ASP, PHP, and any other text based document I use Editplus. It 
doesn't seem like the developers are updating much these days but it's 
still a good editor.

Phil

If you're using MS Windows, I vote for TextPad. You can download a trial version, fully-functional and never expires, but reminds you when you open it. It supports syntax hi-lighting for literally dozens of different languages, spelling checkers for many spoken languages, macros, bookmarks, pattern-based search and replace, etc., etc., etc. And it's reasonably priced (US$27 for a single-user license). You can find it at http://www.textpad.com David.

SciTe (http://scintilla.org) is my choose. it support folding, autoidentation, autocompletion, api tips and much more. I press F7 to call make, F5 to compile and run current file, Ctrl+F7 to compile current file to object file. It have output panel where all stderr & stdout from called programs go. And after all, it is fast and small like DMC :-)

copy-paste operations as fast as I can keep up with what is going on. Everybody seems to come from the scholastic-professional arena where client-server is the *only* way to boogie. That is safer in production, but for exploration of how all this works, that 100 milliseconds makes me think the machine is hanging. I edit with a consumer kernel on a machine isolated from networks, then test on an isolated machine that is set up with all the client-server paths in the OS. I use such things as class browsers and IDE's to understand the accomplished work of those farther along than I am, then write with all the #defines removed (that I can remove) so that I see as close as possible to what is actually being fed to the parser. Not, that I understand the operation of the parser yet. Nick - "The only dumb question is one you should have asked and didn't."

One of my professors used to say: "why doesn't anyone ask questions? Ask questions, there's no such thing as a dumb question." A couple lectures later, a student asks him how he got from C to D. The professor replied "you should have learned that in your previous class, go ask that prof about that, don't waste our time here with that question." Next lecture: "why doesn't anyone ask any questions?" (Actually, he was a brilliant and gifted professor, I learned a ton in his classes. He was just funny about questions <g>.)

The blip at the beginning of the dataset is because people are buying tickets and some of them aren't getting on the plane right away.... I was correct. If you factor in the $10,000 - $100,000 it takes to fulfill a 5 year program of formal study, then we have vast world empire of top-heavy, self-fullfilling mythology that is not bothered by a 900 ms delay in the GUI. My real problem is that Harold too often proves right. I think what your professor was doing was demonstrating for the class how the real world works, they teach in business school that same lesson. Most efforts fail.

I do is crisis intervention on big projects where it is almost
impossible to keep the wheels on the runway.

I can straighten it out for you if you want.

Also, board administrators please note the email address I used at
