I want to write and compile a program that has pthread in it in IDE .

in terminal I use -pthread option of gcc to compile it, (otherwise I would get error frmo gcc) but in IDEs like geany or code::blocks I dont know how to tell it to use -pthread when it compiles so it deosnt give me error ?

btw, which IDE , I should use for programs in C ?

For code blocks:

Go to settings -> compiler and debugger -> linker setting and add pthread there.

As for which IDE, use whichever one you like the best.
