    I remember that I have used a tool which is very good ,its logo is
    like a rhombic-square style,and four sides are four different
    color,but I forget the software's name , is there anyone who have used
    it ?? Can you tell me ? Thanks so much !

    I do not like to use visual studio ,its installation cost too many

    but there is so less resource about CygWin , MinGW ,Code Warrior in
    Chinese , Who knows where can I download them?

    Thanks !!

    I am not sure ,but I went to the Code::Blocks' Website and download it
    with installing .
    I see this :
    the logo in the first content row looks like very much....
    I think maybe the Code::Blocks have changed its version ^^ and logo

    Thanks ,Devin , Thank you very much~

  4. Good C language development tools?

    I use vi, cc, and make. Anything else just gets in the way.

    Free yourself! Embrace the command line.

    Perhaps, if vi has been ported to DOS, which I suppose is quite
    possible. However, I think it more likely he's talking about the command
    line on a more competently designed OS, probably one similar to UNIX.

    Oh heck yes. <> I'm pretty sure there
    were other flavors besides vim, back in the day, but vim is the go-to
    nowadays. The port-ability of vi is one of its strengths. I recall
    building one for CP/M with BDS C back in the Paleolithic.

    Amen. I often say "if it looks good, then it wasted your time by
    making you look at it". (Or less explicily "if you notice the
    interface, it has failed".)

    Not that command lines are perfect, but the fact that my dwm session
    contains more than 90% terminals, it's clear my own preference lies
    there. (I have one conkerer window (a keyboard- driven browser), and a
    perl/tk tool I wrote myself to help me find anagrams, the rest are
    xterm or rxvt.)

    The fact that when I press an arrow key on a strange system I don't
    know whether it will move the insertion cursor by one place or will
    escape from that mode and treat the rest of the sequence of characters
    as a mysterious incantation has always made me consider vi-alikes not
    portable enough.

    You mean like a linker? You really ARE hardcore...
    Actually, right off the bat I can't see the big
    advantage using vi rather than say "Notepad", but
    the truth is I've always been more than satisfied
    with the dedicated code editors that come with
    the various development packages.

    Their version of "make", now that's a somewhat
    different always have to guess what,
    where, when, and how they've decided code will
    go into the thing. Some are basically unusable
    as a result, others are OK and actually a big
    help at times once you figure out what you need to
    do and when to do it...

  12. Grumpf. GUIs are a Cadillac. The command line is a truck. If you want
    to get work done, use the truck.

  13. despite your prejudices there are millions of peopel getting work done
    using guis. vi is not the command line.
    Nick Keighley, Oct 28, 2011
  14. Amusingly enough, I believe vi isn't required to support arrow keys in
    insert mode, so you shouldn't be attempting to use them.
    Esa Lakaniemi, Oct 28, 2011
  15. Arrow keys don't always work, but I've never met a vi that didn't accept
    H, J, K, and L. Stick to the home row and remember that insert is a
    command, not the default mode. If you want to move around the file, you
    should be in command mode and using the movement commands--it's more
    efficient like that, anyway.

    You're certainly right that it accepts H, J, K, and L. It of course inserts
    them, which is as much a failure to move around as an escape followed by a
    pile of line noise.
    Nonsense. I should be in an editor which permits me to move the cursor
    whenever I want. Fortunately that's almost every editor in the world,
    so I don't feel too restricted by that constraint.
    Only if you drink the vi koolaid. You're coming over as someone who's not
    read /The Inmates are Ruling the Asylum/.

  17. there's a standard for vi?
    Nick Keighley, Oct 29, 2011
  18. to be fair vi isn't aimed at the average user, which appear to be what
    TIARTA is talking about

    Yes, it's one of the Unix standard command line utilities; it's
    currently specified by IEEE Std 1003.1-2008.

  20. Yes, POSIX.
