Code::Blocks Editor's Review

Code::Blocks is an independent developer environment (IDE) for producing applications in C++. 

Code::Blocks' main claim to fame is its versatility. It's been designed with extensibility in mind, supporting full configuration. Code::Blocks accomplishes this by a modular design -- the whole application is made largely from plug-ins. Existing plug-ins handle even its core programming functions -- for example, compiling and debugging are both handled by plug-ins. This structure means that almost any functionality you can imagine can be handled by a suitable plug-in module. A wide range of different plug-ins already exist; you can also code your own using Code::Blocks' own plug-in creation wizard. This gives a tremendous amount of cohesiveness across different applications.

The interface is clear, intuitive and simple to use, so even if you're a novice at coding in C++ you will soon get the hang of Code::Blocks. The program has a number of useful, time saving features that make coding a lot less stressful. For example, colour changes in your code make spotting errors very easy, so you can correct them before you compile. Code completion and indentation is excellent, requiring only minimal configuration. 

Code::Blocks is not really as stable as, say, Visual Studio. Having said that, minor instability is a small price to pay for the software's excellent features. 

One thing I'd add to my Code::Blocks wishlist would be a C++ tutorial, since it's ideal for a novice.

Pros: Modular, adaptable, slick interface.

Cons: Some stability issues.

Conclusion: A great free C++ IDE.
