NetBeans seems to be a bit more streamlined. I installed Cygwin also, for its libraries / bins. Seems that's required for general C / C++ development anyway.

The NetBeans IDE is a bit easier to configure... but I can't seem to get it to work. I have the Code Assistance section working, I think - the editor is detecting the libraries correctly, and highlighting / etc as expected.

But when I try to build a project, I get the following error: No shell found. Cannot proceed. Please install either CYGWIN or Msys.

Cygwin is already installed, the bin directory and executables has been added to the C/C++ Build Tools and Code Assistance sections. I've hit the Restore Defaults to re-build the Tool Collection, I've restarted, I've added the bin directory to the system Path variable... but this error keeps on plaguing me!

Bah, what a pain in the bum. :-s Any ideas?

NetBeans IDE 7.0.1
Ill post a guide tomorrow... in the meantime try youtube

I actually just tried some C in Visual Studio 2010, and am a bit surprised that it actually worked! I thought VS was only C++... guess I was wrong.

Thank you, everyone, for so many replies! I may have to try NetBeans / Eclipse again in the future, but for now, VS seems to be the easiest to work with for me.

Are you seriously complaining about learning C in a Unix/Linux environment? Not to be mean, but cmon man - that's like going to mechanic school and complaining about working in a garage. This is stuff you need to learn. You can't just ez-mode Windows GUI auto-complete intellisense it for life. You use the best environment for the language at hand. Learn to use Unix/Linux, vim/emacs, command line tools, etc. Tons of jobs (like mine) will have you using it. Vim and emacs are like the artist's paintbrush. It's all essential to learn.

No problem. And I couldn't agree more with wuddersup.

I would use the tools the course provides you with. In college, you're there to learn, and it makes it easier to do so when you're using whatever everyone else is using, including your professor. It's only 8 or 16 weeks out of your life. You're not trying to choose a toolset to make you more productive for the next few years at a job. You're just trying to learn some basic programming.
