You have a head start then. Why not install Linux on your PC? If you insist using windows, which is IMO a dog to develop on, there is Emacs and GDB for windows. Just Goggle around.

You can use just any editor. Many come with syntax highlighting and software development support. Besides, you just need a DOS box (and MinGW installed) where you type "make". If you have Unix programming experience (even command line) you should be rather acquainted to this kind of thing.

The task is divided into the following subtasks:

1) Change the menu to include just an "Import" command, instead of the
current submenus.
Have a look at the existing code. You can create those things easily by Cut'N'Paste. Don't remove any existing commands, definitely not at the start. Why not add a submenus entry (say "Auto" or something). I favor keeping the exiting commands, because it gives more power to the user, and an option if the automatic detection misses.

Please tell me how to do (1) and I will do (2).
After testing it, I will also need how to check-in the modified files.
