Do you consider adding CINT support?
« on: May 16, 2006, 02:51:38 pm »
Hi guys. Thanks for this wanderfull IDE!

I was wondering whether it is planned to add CINT support in Code::Blocks. That would be awesome because CINT interprets C++, and it can be completely embedded into Code::Blocks! CINT projects would not need any compilation, they could actually run directly.

More information: http://root.cern.ch/root/Cint.html

This would make Code::Blocks the best choice for learning C++ programming language (however, i think students MUST learn how to use compiler/linker by hand).

I know you must be tired of reading suggestions because you do not have time for your own ideas, but please put this one on some TODO list as low-priority, open task (someone might write the code for this).

Kind regards, and keep on good work!

I've been waiting for the new compiler framework to add support for CINT. It's really great, though it isn't much widely known .
The ability to change easily between compiled and interpreted c++ pieces of your code, is priceless.

I did not know CINT. It seems interesting :). Thanks for the link.

Best wishes,

first id like to say Code blocks is really an amazing IDE,
thank you for all the hard work.
and as for the cint support,i might not be have experiance with cammercial IDEs but having a c++
interpreter can be one of the most innovative features a IDE can have,
an interpreted implementation is a big part of python success for example,
productivaty can be doubled or even tripled with the no time spended on compile-link cycles,
which can really help when learning GUI programming (with WxWidget ofcourse)
just think about all those times you waited impatiently for a piece code to compile so you could test it,
also the debbugging can be much faster,

just my honest opinion on the subject,

Btw:i would have loved to help on adding support for CINT but im still hacking on the WxWidget hello world sample and im not a very exprienced c++ programmer either,
