Code::Blocks is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that built to meet he most demanding needs of its users. It’s support Windows, Linux, and MacOS. It’s free but very powerful. You can configure it’s user interface as you want, so you will enjoy the interface.
Codeblocks IDE support plugins. You can install or code plugins to be integrated with it, so you can use it as you want. Some plugins has been added in the default installation, include for debugging and compiling.
In my opinion this software is more powerful than other editor. I used Microsoft Visual C++ in Windows but it makes my laptop exhausted, so I used CodeBlocks in Ubuntu 12.10 and my laptop is not exhausted anymore. I have programming lesson and I have using many software, from Microsoft Visual Studio, Geany, DevC++, and now I used this software. This software is simple but very powerful as I said before. Free and simple, but very powerful. Good job, developer! Next semester I face it again and I will use this software.
