At my school they said we can use any compiler we want, so I wanted to bring my VS2010 with me, which is not portable and uses a long time to install, sometimes even requiring reboot(which is not an option-the PCs have Deep Freeze on) so I'm looking for a similar IDE(the PCs have DevC++ and VC++ 6.0 which are both quite obsolete) so what would you recommend to use?(size doesn't matter, I got 16GB USB)
Also I'd appreciate some screenshots of the IDE :P
Well I don't really need a compiler for "rocket-measure" programs, it's just some easy stuff (IMO kinda below my level of knowledge but have to take it anyway :P), all the customization it needs is additional include dirs and library linking :P
about that program for making portable programs, do you know anything more? Seems interesting.
Oh and one more thing: It'd also be nice to have some kind of function parameter suggestions(like void doThat(int x,int y)) when you type.
I'm very surprised that your school doesn't have proper software installed already. Microsoft's Academic Alliance program offers special licenses to both students and educators - which your school is probably eligible for. You might consider speaking with the staff in charge of the department about this.
