C++ editor

Hello guys
I m new to this forum and I have learned C++ last 10 years ago. Now I want to learn again. But the problem is I don't have the editor.

The last time I learned C++ with turbo c editor (not too much sure). When I want to enter C++ editor

I have to type

then blue screen is appear and I can write code there.
And now I would like to download that editor
Can u show me or guide me that editor download link?

and Other C++ editor download link?

Many thanks
Use Code::blocks dude. Or if your a real man download gcc and a terminal emulator.
I don't see why you'd need a terminal emulator when you can just run gcc from the commandline. I also don't see why running gcc by the commandline makes you a "real man".

Personally I like MSVS's IDE, as its debugger is pretty great. There's a free version available (VS Express).

Code::Blocks per trollger's suggestion is another good IDE. Also free.

IDEs have taken over pretty much from text editors, though there are still die hard traditionalists who use emacs, vim, ...

When it comes to IDEs, I use CodeLite (on Unbuntu and Windows) and Visual Studio (on Windows.) CodeLite has a very similar feature set to Code::Blocks, but the way it handles projects is a bit closer to Visual Studio, which is what I'm most used to.

But if you want to code using a programmer's editor and the command line, rather than an IDE, then you've got ScITE, Notepad++, GEdit, Programmer's Notepad, ... as well as the heavier duty, trad editors.

There is also Geany, which can be seen to be either a very lightweight IDE or a complicated editor.


PS I run CodeLite on Windows both directly (from a Windows command console or a shortcut) and launching it from a MSYS terminal session. The latter approach is required to get some open source projects to build, unless you're keen/masochistic enough to rework their build systems.

PPS ScITE is the text editor I like at the moment. But this poll puts Notepad++ in the lead.

As I'm waiting for Visual Studio 2013 RTM to be released, my current setup is:

Sublime Text 2 as editor:

Nuwen MinGW distro as C++ compiler and tools:

Total Commander as file manager:

I also have this batch file named cpps.cmd in a directory that was included in the PATH environment variable:

@echo off

call c:\MinGW\set_distro_paths.bat

doskey checkcc=g++ --version
doskey cc98=g++ -Wall -Wextra -pedantic -std=c++98 $*
doskey cc03=g++ -Wall -Wextra -pedantic -std=c++03 $*
doskey cc11=g++ -Wall -Wextra -pedantic -std=c++11 $*
doskey c99=gcc -Wall -Wextra -pedantic -std=c99 $*

@echo C/C++ [c99, cc98, cc03, cc11]
