  • Extensible through plugins

Compiler

Debugger

  • Interfaces GNU GDB
  • Also supports MS CDB (not fully featured)
  • Full breakpoints support:
    • Code breakpoints
    • Data breakpoints (read, write and read/write)
    • Breakpoint conditions (break only when an expression is true)
    • Breakpoint ignore counts (break only after certain number of hits)
  • Display local function symbols and arguments
  • User-defined watches (support for watching user-defined types through scripting)
  • Call stack
  • Disassembly
  • Custom memory dump
  • Switch between threads
  • View CPU registers

Interface

  • Syntax highlighting, customizable and extensible
  • Code folding for C++ and XML files.
  • Tabbed interface
  • Code completion
  • Class Browser
  • Smart indent
  • One-key swap between .h and .c/.cpp files
  • Open files list for quick switching between files (optional)
  • External customizable "Tools"
  • To-do list management with different users
