Hey there,

I know nearly everything can edit code out there in the basic .txt file, but I'm curious if there are any programs out there which will highlight/point out syntax errors, whilst coding. I know there are a couple for Java and things like this, but I am looking for one which will catch C++ syntax errors as I am coding.

Currently I am using SubEthaEdit, and I'm curious if there are any other good alternatives.

Thanks a lot,

mm13

use the editor vim, which is excellent :) Turn on syntax coloring with the command [ESC] :set syntax on

Meh...I'm pretty disappointed with the state of IDEs on the Mac. After using Eclipse on Windows for a while, I expect my IDE to auto-indent code, auto-complete my code, quick-fix any problems my code may have, etc. I know, Eclipse runs on OS X, too, but since Apple has done such a crap job with Java on the Mac, I find it rather slow and unusable, especially after working with the Windows version. I want a native IDE that does everything Eclipse can do. Or I could just become a less-lazy programmer--it would probably be could for me.

As I just recommended in another thread give jEdit a go. I haven't really had any performance problems with it but I only use it for the ocassional bug fix on kde.org so I can't really comment too much.
