Create applications and test them in an IDE that supports simple or advanced debugging for multiple programming languages like C, C++, and Fortran. All the modules are highly configurable and the base functionality can be extended by using plug-ins without knowing advanced programming language.

Code::Blocks is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to develop several types of C/C++ projects like console applications, DirectX, GTK+, OpenGL, QT and more.
We can see this program as a 'mini' version of Eclipse as the environment layout resembles a lot. Moreover, you will notice an extensive use of KDE-like icons to build the user interface, and good-looking hi-color pictures to decorate the settings dialogs.

One feature that I particularly liked is the auto-detection of the installed on the computer compilers, so we are not forced to use any compiler in special, this is very useful on Linux environments.
And if you don't get enough of the program itself, try the long list of plugins that can be installed! Auto versioning, code snippets, code stats, drag and scroll, and many more.

On Windows systems it is better to download the 'mingw-setup' version (about 9 MB more) that includes a GCC compiler and GDB debugger. Under Linux environments it's more likely that we already have such tools installed, so there is no need to download them.

Review summary

Pros

  • It's freeware and open source, very simple to use. Not so heavyweight as Eclipse

Cons

  • Of course the environment is limited to C/C++ projects, but if you are improving these languages, that's all what you need

I've been using this program for a couple of years, and I can say it's very easy to download, install, use, and configure. I recommend students to use it because it's very stable. smile
