Visual C++ 8 Express Edition .NET 2.0
« on: January 12, 2006, 09:13:20 am »
It's only slightly better than Code::Blocks.
A noticeable difference but for a product you are supposed to pay $100 for, it aint worth it.

Code::Blocks only needs to fix the curent level of bugs, add some improvements already mentioned and add project dependency compilation and it would be on par with VS Express C++.

I've just created a project with VSE and it's code completition is on par with Code::Block's. Why is this a problem? Code::Blocks's code completition plugin has a *BUG* inside it while Microsoft's software AFAIK doesn't have a bug.
$10 says next release of Code::Blocks overtakes VSE 8?

I don't know which version you 're using but the HEAD version supports project dependencies for some time now :)
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

IMHO C::B is better and it is getting better each day (just looks at the resolved fixed for the nightly builds) :D. Anyway, I would not compare too much C::B with Visual Studio, because AFAIK C::B does not aim to be a new version of Visual Studio.

Code::Blocks only needs to fix the curent level of bugs, add some improvements already mentioned and add project dependency compilation and it would be on par with VS Express C++.

Which version are you using? Did you try the latest nightly build?

Code completion is WIP. Anyway, rikg22 has already implemented several improvements (see the nightly build of 11 January 2006).
