C++ command line development tools for Linux standard?

C++ command line development tools for Linux standard?

 

As most of you know, I am looking for a decent toolset for c++ Linux development. Thanks to a number of you on my Facebook group, I have come to the conclusion that VS Code is not what I am looking for.

 

There were standard comments like:

 

Yeah, I myself use tmux+vim, youcompleteme for autocomplete while coding, gdb and valgrind for debugging, great stuff.

 

Neovim was mentioned. It seems that standard C++ IDEs will not work as they are really buggy where you waste time.
Visual Studio has this

but this is not native to Linux and most likely will flop when porting to C++ code to Linux. No thanks as I don’t trust what Microsoft pumps out these days especially being on forced update Windows 10.

 

Gdb was the standard debugging tool for C++ debugging Linux files. I found this though

It looks like the command line tools are what is the most popular. I might have to put on my big boy pants to work with this.

Here is how to properly debug in R with the command line.

What do the experts say about R debugging capabilities vs highly productive Matlab

I got more on R thank you think. Join my FREE newsletter

Seriously, I coded in Matlab for 5 years, and I don’t miss the interactive debugger that much.

 

There are a couple of ways to be able to interactively debug in R, however. I have used the “traceback()” function to display in which function things went wrong. Also using “options(error=recover)” to drop myself into the space where things went wrong and view the objects.

 

Finally, for stepping through a function that is causing problems, there is “debug()” to actually force a function to wait for next step commands (similar to “browser()”), and then of course the insertion of “browser(expr=TRUE)” prior to where you think the function is actually dying.

 

All of this, btw can be found easily. I would say this is essentially “interactive debugging” because you are in the midst of the function, and can query the state of various variables, and modify them before proceeding.
