programming for Linux
Hey guys, I've been meaning to get my hands dirty programming the server side of my mod in Ubuntu. I know that you can just use the make file to compile it in the terminal, but what are good programs that aid programmers like VS does? Say things like having the user set breakpoints, seeing a call stack when it hits the breakpoint or when the program crashes, etc. My friend mentioned eclipse but I was wondering if there are others.

There is nothing that is anywhere remotely close to MSVC for that, but GDB works for debugging some levels of debugging. Though, I've never used it myself. I ususally do the main debugging in windows where I need to unless it is a linux specific problem. So to put it this way, to my knowledge there are no really good or decent visual aid debuggers like MSVC does. Unless someone else wishes to comment on this and or my knowledge is not up to date.

Usually comes with gcc but not positive on that.

Thanks for the info Ensi, main reason was like you said catching the linux specific problems. I know they are rare and unlikely after VC catching most of them, but was wanting to know just to be on the safe side.

I've seen eclipse and it probably works, but it's quite a bit different from VS. You'd probably have to relearn a lot to be able to use it.
