True, but it's horrible.
It depends on how much you want to spend, and how much you want to learn.
Vim - hard learn, confusing modal editor. Brilliant. My second favourite.
http://www.vim.org - just an editor, but there is some stuff to read in
compiler errors & bring you to where the problems are.
XEmacs - middling to learn. To do advanced stuff, a small knowledge of the
LISP language would be good, but not needed. I used to use it before
Vim was good - it's more than an editor & has GDB/GCC integrated
CodeWarrior - apparently brilliant, but not out just yet. In the works.
Visual Slickedit - Excellent, but £120 or so - just an editor
http://www.sickedit.com (demo for linux/windows availible)
kide and gide are a pair of free IDEs in the works. Neither are worth
using though. Advice - when wondering "what package can do..." go to
http://freshmeat.net & use the search. It indexes hundreds of packages a
month & will tell you where to get their homepages, or latest versions.
