begginer questions , trying to move from eclipse CDT to cb
« on: July 08, 2012, 08:41:07 pm »
Hello all
long time c++ developer , i trying to move from using eclipse CDT to CB
resone , im need something lighter .
any way im using Ubuntu 10 , i downloaded the ready made CB from the site :
codeblocks-10.05-1-debian-i386.tar.bz2 ,
my questions , (beginners )
1. i noticed the version in the site is from 2010 , why is there any ready made versions that are newrs
something that i dont need to build from source ? if yes where ?
2. in the build messages , why i can't copy the errors strings  or in the build log?
3. where i can see ( if any) the compilation string of the compiler/linker  the raw version string (like the one you hit make file )
4. can i split side by side different files NOT the same file ?
5. can i make the GUI even lighter ?
Thanks

1. see my signature for a debian repository with more recent builds of C::B,
2. you can, but not with Ctrl+C, but with context-menu (right mouse button),
3. if you use a recent build (see 1.) it should be switched on as default, for 10.05 see http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=FAQ-Compiling_%28errors%29#Q:_How_do_I_troubleshoot_a_compiler_problem.3F ,
4. just drag the tab of an editor and move it to another place in the editor window, if a blueish rectangle appears to show you where it will be placed, just drop the tab,
5. you can switch off the toolbars you don't need via the "View" menu, you can also just close the tabs you don't need in the "Logs and others" pane or disable plugins you don't need via the "Plugins -> Manage plugins" menu.
