If you mean like Visual C, no, not really. *Real Programmers* don't
need or use an IDE -- they are more of a hinderence than a help anyway
(and stiffle learning the programming language). There is GnuEmacs and
that is pretty much it.


The future isn't that bleak, though. For small/medium size C++ development using GCC and friends, there are the Code::Blocks ( and Dev-C++ ('s. If you are ambitious there is of course Eclipse (, which is pretty much the standard these days. Eclipse is not unlike GnuEmacs in its ambition to provide a framework for just about any computing problem, perhaps even including those to which the answer might be 42.
