moondevil,

"Having had the chance to start developing software around 1986 while trying out quite a few development environments, I fail to understand how many developers like to develop in UNIX as if they were using System V!"

Can you clarify what you mean?


"GDB has a very nice feature though, you can use it as a C/C++ REPL while the programming is running."

You could watch & execute expressions in turbo debugger as well, dereference variables from pointers/structures. I cannot recall the full extent of the capability, and anyways it only applied to C & pascal (whereas I was using it more for assembly debugging). I vaguely remember being able to enter new assembly opcodes on the fly, although that might have only been debug.com.


"Eclipse CDT or QtCreator."

I guess it's time for me to try eclipse again, the last time I used it for a work project it was very bloated and slow.
