come with Windows

At some point, you want to get 'make', which automates the compile/link steps. Any serious project needs a build program.


This is heresy on an emacs list (hence the private email), but I don't think emacs is a very good debugger. I certainly use it for all my editing in all languages, but not for debugging.

On Windows, I use either Eclipse or MS Visual C++. Both have a learning curve and some setup for each project, but then they work well.

On Linux, I use ddd (a GUI front end to gdb.) The UI isn't as polished as the Windows programs, but it requires zero configuration.
