Codeblocks as IDE for school
« on: November 12, 2007, 03:46:46 pm »
Hello. I'm teach children to program C and Pascal. And looking for an freesoftware IDE for pupils, i was found Codeblock. It's great, but...

1. Is codeblocks able to debug without creating a project? Only a last courses pupils use several-files program, others are creating only 1-file projects. Creating project, complex directory tree for one .c file looking not good. And i'm searching for simplest way to add to codeblock feature to work with one .c file as with a project. Should I go deep to codeblocks scripting, or it would be easier to modify some sources?

2. As I watching, codeblocks build system does not use i18n? I can to translate all codeblock into russian, and if problem #1 will be solved, i do it, but... should I modify Makefiles or this modifications are already done but i'm not see it?

ps. excuse me for my English, but there are no much practice.

Unfortunately this is not supported (yet).

Code::Blocks uses Launchpad for its translations. But this is not yet integrated in the build process.
An outdated but nevertheless helpful article to read: Internationalization
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

I think you can debug one file by Tools-plug-in (if you can configure tools with compiler and debugger)

The plugin is available in the latest nighlies, but won't solve your problem.
Debugging using the C::B GUI is supported only if you have a project.
