    What, like LISP programmers, you mean?

    Isn't that more like writing their own programming language to program with?

    Aw, heck, no - I figure they're past that stage by now and have got machine intelligence advanced to the point where it can at least code BASIC, it's just that they're not telling us...

    Been a while since I did any c/c++, but I can recommend codeblocks. Is a great IDE that runs on Linux and another well known OS

    Sorry for replying late to this thread but one tool we've found essential for C/C++ development on Linux is Valgrind. It's very good at finding memory leaks, use of uninitialised memory and other fun bugs at runtime.

    All our software is developed on Debian Stable and then ported to Windows for release when it passes Valgrind. I've not found anything similar for free on Windows so give it a look; if your program is of any significant size it can be a real lifesaver.
