Anyone out there know of a C++ programming/coding utility that is cheap (preferably free)?? I mean, I know you get what you pay for (sometimes), but I thought someone out there made up one and said "buck the system" since the system only wants yer hard earned bucks...

If y'all know about one, then please gimme the link.

Thanx
SilentThief

Define "C++ programming/coding utility"?

A compiler? Can get those for free easily. Borland have one for free, google for the 'borland command line tools'. It can do about anything you can do in a full featured commercial development package, although GUI design is a pain since you have to do it in code rather than by dragging buttons etc.

If you just want a decent programmers editor, ConText is very nice. Syntax highlighting, parenthesis matching and so on. Google for it.

Or there are Emacs and Vi versions for windows. If you have to ask what those are, stay away from Vi like the plague, and go for Emacs.

I know a compiler allows you to compile (duh) a program to working assembly/machine language. But do they allow you to write your own stuff into it, run it (debug it), and then compile? What I'm looking at is this: the DungeonCraft area of I-works is where we discuss the DC project. The programmer of DC had said in the past that the sourcecode was public licence and can be played with. I wanna play with the code and then run it, and maybe later compile it into working code.

What you're looking for is a full IDE(integrated development environment)

I advise you to get Devcpp by Bloodshed software. It comes with the MinGW compiler and is open source, completely free. It even includes debugging utils, so it's basically a full development environment. I've used it quite a lot and it's pretty good.
