IDE for C & C++ Programming

Pros

Its a lightweight software with inbuilt libraries and debugging tool for C & C++ programming. It is open source and could be used to create GUI based applications. Syntax error tracking is much more efficient and compiler designing could be done using code blocks

Cons

There is nothing to dislike about this software but it could not be used used for high processing and data computation usage.

Is Code::Blocks still good to use?

Code::Blocks is a platform where you can easily do what you want to do, without too much of a hassle. If you don't try to find out what else it has to offer though, you will never find out; it is all there, it just doesn't present itself to you.

Pros

Code::Blocks is straight to the point, and that is something that is not found frequently these days. A lot of programs bombard you with all of their features, and you are left to wonder where you even begin. With Code::Blocks, you find your way pretty easily, without fancy unwanted features. Code::Blocks is free to download and to use and is easily accessible on the internet. The community for Code::Blocks is big and it is never hard to get a question answered if you wonder about something

Cons

Although the user interface is easy to navigate, it is not the most beautiful sight. It looks outdated and dull, and it is not the most thrilling of experiences to code in Code::Blocks. If you don't browse through Code::Blocks, you won't really know what more it has to offer, because there is no navigation tutorial of some sort.

Summing up my experience with code::Blocks I would say one of the reasons that helped me take the initiative to learn coding was this software and I highly recommend any beginner to start with it.

Pros

• The software is totally free. • A place for beginners to start with as it has so many built-in features. • Moving to the professional level it's a good tool to debug with as it contains all the functionalities required for advanced IDE. • The ease execution of a good.

Cons

• For more sophisticated projects it may have a lot of issues with no reasonable reasons. • Doesn't support several languages. • Needs to be interfered with in order to get knowledge of the features available in hand.

Code::Blocks - Review 2021

I've been using Code::Blocks in my first year as a computer science student just because the teacher obliged us to work with (He is from old school XD). After that, I directly switched to other IDEs. And now as a developer, I think that I've took the right decision.

Pros

The only thing I liked in Code::Blocks is that it's free, open-source and cross-platform.

Cons

The user interface must be changed, it's too outdated for the present time. The software might have bugs sometimes and it takes a long time to start. It requires manual setup for GNU compiler. It also doesn't have dark-theme which is unacceptable. In one word : it's Old School.

An open source integrated development environment for C, C++, and many other programming languages

It is a superb IDE which is free, easy, and reliable. This software is a masterpiece and every beginner should start its programming journey from this software. Moreover, it is also useful for professionals because it includes all the functionalities required for advance software development.

Pros

This was the first integrated development environment (IDE) which I started using during my engineering studies and since then I have developed several academic as well as professional software using this IDE. It is Old and truly a gold. It a complete suite that can write, compile, debug, and run the program in several classical programming languages.

Cons

It is difficult to point out something that I dislike about this software because it is too good. However, if they include several other programming languages like Python, Go, and Java by default in their IDE so that can make it more useful.
