    What software for development should I use?

    Hi!
    I have to do a University exercise that is I have to develop code in C. The code will have to handle processes, client server processes, socket descriptors & sockets, and creating new processes using fork().

    What development environment do you suggest? I would prefer something that has step by step debugging, variables watch window etc.

    Thanks

    Alex

    geany, kate, emacs

    In the beginning I would recommend staying with geany, kate, or emacs. They might be much simpler than you are asking for, but they do the job.

    Later, after you're familiar with the language, and are working on large projects you can look at kdevelop, netbeans or eclipse.

    I've been using XEmacs in the past. I am a bit familiar with C language.
    I've used NetBeans for java development. Should I start using Netbeans for C ?
    Where do I find and install kate , geany , emacs , netbeans, kdevelop? I would like to have go with all of these.

    Moved to Programming Talk.

    You'll probably get lots of answers here, each recommending a different IDE.

    He's just pulling your leg. The vim vs emacs editor war is a classic.

    There should be a Recurring Discussions subforum in PT.

    kate and kdevelop are in your usual repository. They integrate with the KDE desktop (which is a bit more oriented towards software development than Gnome or <smirk>Unity</smirk>

    Which should include itself as a subforum, recursively.
