Ah, yes. Peolpe like me and you :-)
So what are your needs? I had a closer look at some
of the tightly integrated DEs but have to say that
none really worked out as i wanted to. Most of them
had some really nice features but lacked other features.
As an user of (x)emacs i often found the editor components
I finally ended up with the following settup:
- autoproject (for setting up a project skeleton)
- gvd as a debugger. This is probably a tool not
known by many. It's a gtk-based frontend to the
well known gdb (written in ADA, but there are
binaries available for download). It looks and
works pretty similar to the more famous ddd
debugger but with a (IMHO) more ergonomic GUI.
Oh, one thing i came to love: you can save the
state of a debugging session to a file and recover
Another major plus: it uses emacs as an embedded
- glade as a GUI builder.
- cvs for source code control (currently switching
to subversion, the new cvs followup).
to study and reverse engineer code of old projects
i use Source Navigator from ReadHat/Cygnus. Another
option would be 'sniff+' but that's a commercial
tool (with arguably a _lot_ of nice features).
There used to be a free (as in free beer) Penguin
edition, but i can't find it on the net anymore.
