Best PC Programming Suite ?
« on: June 09, 2009, 06:23:58 PM »
Could this be the best programming Suite for the PC ?

SlickEdit 2009:

TextTransformer

Parser :

This is the software we should aim for :-)

The SlickEdit folks use copy protection from Macrovision (FlexLM). Boycott. Two reasons: 1) FlexLM is a single point of failure in distributed environments; 2) Macrovision holds a government sanctioned monopoly on several copyright technologies, including the analog video copy protection associated with their name.

For Windows programming, you can't beat Visual Studio. I use the Visual Studio IDE for Amiga programming as well.

I scanned over them, but what am I looking for? None of them really caught my attention.
I'll stick to BASIC and 68k ty.

Trev:

Some staff at MS use slickedit :)

The feature I like is the API pluggin auto detect structs and list available functions/commands.

Fanscale:

With TextConverter/Parser one could convert from one programming language to another. EG C/Basic conversion

Or from one API to another !

For example a program/game written using DirectX could be converted to SDL/OpenGL.
Windows GUI eg a Visual basic 'form' could be converted to Blitz/E/C source code etc

I also use Visual Studio, but I hate to program for Amiga if I had to keep switching screens. I would like if VS could communicate with Winuea so I can debug/run Amiga app on the fly.

SlickEdit can use almost any programming language.

Agreed.  VS is a great product.  If you're a student you can get full VS for free through dreamspark. Else you can get Express which is pretty full featured anyway.

The obvious disadvantage of VS is the lack of plugins for addtional languages.  (Maybe there are some out there?  I only use C++ and C#).

OT RE: FlexLM/FlexNet.  Macrovision no longer owns it, it is now owned by Acresso (owners of InstallShield).  And, it's never had to be a single point of failure.  No reason you can't have multiple license servers.

Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(
