First steps… Looking for perfect IDE
Some time ago I need to write application that will run every 15 min and get information about how many pages was printed on network printers (OKI B6250 and Konica Minolta 7333). I had experience in Delphi but i wanna do this in free IDE. Obviously Lazarus is not enough for me…
So i decided to use NetBeans with C++. Unfortunately my experience and knowledge in C was very poor… So after using google, trying to do something alone, I decided write it in well known for me – PHP… It’s not perfect choice but acceptable for that project. Also I don’t wanna waste my time with project in C without basic knowledge of that language. So I decide, that C++ need wait for better time.
Hurray! Now Im starting learn C++ also I had a books (never use it before – so this is quite new for me :))
The first question was, “what IDE?”. I know Borland had sometime his C++ IDE but this was not free. Im looking for free, user-friendly environment. As I said before I choice NetBeans with C++ (MinGW) and I hope its a good choice.
