    "Disappointing"

    May 14, 2014   |   By re-view

    Version: Code::Blocks 1rc2

    Pros

    Can't tell, couldn't create project.

    Cons

    C::B 13.12
    Installation failed.
    Apparetly it supposed to come with plugins installed.
    It doesn't. I tried to create a wxSmith/widget project.
    Doesn't create, can't find the path to the wxwidgets.
    There is no explanation, no guide, no instruction, NOTHING.

    For those who are quick to grab the mouse replying to "read the manual" - I did.
    wxSmith doesn't have ANY entry.
    wxWidget talks about finding libraries for plugins but:
    - the help is for an older version for the requester doesn't match to the one shown in help
    - the requester requires you to know what they wanted you to do. You just have to be born with the knowledge and type it in. The creators obviously have no idea what a GUI is about. This GUI is just a glorified commandline.

    Summary

    It is suffering of the so typical "Opensource community project syndroms". The creators assume that you have intricate knowledge of operating systems' internal workings as well as you have psychic abilities to read their mind to find out how they imagined the software to work.

    "Excellent product.."

    February 27, 2013   |   By akshayhallur

    Version: Code::Blocks 1rc2

    Pros

    Excellect easily operatable...better than TC.

    Cons

    After installing the software you may get the trouble of building the program.
    The software may not build C or C++ program properly. This is a most common problem for all
    For solving this open
    Codeblocks>Settings>Compiler>Go to Tool chain executables tab>
    Under compiler's installation directory,
    Enter the address of the compiler in your PC and hit OK. ( Usually Cdrive>codeblocks>MinGW>Bin)

    Video of solution is here..

    "Pretty good IDE"

    June 27, 2012   |   By SomeGuy67

    Version: Code::Blocks 1rc2

    Pros

    Nice user interface
    Very user friendly
    Good (and fast) code completion
    Light yet powerful; starts up very quickly

    Cons

    Does not display the parameter types each method takes.

    Summary

    Overall a pretty good IDE. However, I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it does not display the types of parameter each method takes when invoking it. That's the main reason why I prefer Visual Studio over Code::Blocks. Although some may not think it's that big of a deal, it can make a difference when you're working on a large project with multiple classes or when you simply forget the order of the parameters in a function or method.

    "a must-have for any beginner (or expert) at C++"

    August 09, 2009   |   By katnip3

    Version: Code::Blocks 1rc2

    Pros

    The interface was easy to use and made coding fun. I had no experiance with C++ and just wanted to see what coding was like. Code::Blocks changed the color of commands and was REALLY good at finding my mistakes.

    Cons

    It would be nice if a tutorial to C++ was included, but there was nothing wrong with this great free program.

    "A great cross-platform IDE! (use the nightly build!)"

    September 05, 2007   |   By sandwichbutton

    Version: Code::Blocks 1rc2

    Pros

    Assuming your using a nightly build (im quite fond of the september 5th release of 2007) you will have lots of features available to you and will little effort, regardless of your platform. It's code completion and indentation is great from the get go, w/ no real configuring necessary, regardless of the language your writing. Definitely give it a go if you want a good free C++ IDE that works in linux (if you use KDE use Kdevelop, otherwise, use Code::Blocks)

    Cons

    No stable release in 2 years. The latesty nightly build also happens to be more stable than their 1.0 RC 2 build which they consider their stable build. If the programmers could agree on certain release specifications and such, this could become a great IDE even for those of you who insist on using COMPLETELY stable software (even Visual Studio 2003,2005, and 2008 Beta 1 are far from stable in my opinion).
