Little-known but great IDE's

Posted by staufferjames on July 23, 2007 at 7:24 AM PDT

I use Source Insight as my primary IDE.

    I like it because:

  1. It starts quick (so that exiting, renaming code directories, and starting doesn't take long)
  2. It is extensible (so it can syntax highlight internal file formats and parse output of other programs)
  3. It is easy to learn: Just start it and you can start editing files.
  4. I started using it before I even heard of many of the current "big names". I started using it in 1997 or 1998. The small install was beneficial when I would install it on a lab machine in college and it would be removed within a few days.

Do you use a little-known IDE and why do you like it?
