digitalmars.D - Code::Blocks

This is a free cross-platform C/C++ IDE, currently at version 1.0RC2, 
made with wxWidgets.  It uses GCC/mingw32, and gdb, and can import msvc 
6/7 and Dev-c++ projects.

The main point is that someone has added D support to it, available here:

A Linux patch is here:

Has anyone used this IDE, and is it worth bothering with for D work? 
Unless the debugger works properly, I consider it a waste of time to try 
it.  You probably have to install the gdb version that's patched for D 
yourself.  So I'm sort of hoping that someone else will do it first, and 
report back here. I'm just fed up with trying free IDEs that turn out to 
be more trouble then they're worth. ;)

I am using Code::Blocks, as a cross-platform alternative to Dev-C++. My main work is porting it to Mac OS X as well, which is going "OK". After it works on Mac, my next step is integrating it with wxD too. I plan on using and supporting both of them (Code::Blocks/wxWidgets) so I definitely think that is worth bothering with. But do try it ? On Windows I haven't had much trouble, when switching from Dev-C++... --anders PS. Dev-C++ is an IDE for Windows, that uses the MinGW toolchain (GDC/GDB) http://www.bloodshed.net/dev/devcpp.html

I haven't tested it much yet, but it seems that the current Code::Blocks svn trunk has much better support for D than 1.0RC2. -- Jari-Matti
