    Arrow My first look at Carbide.c++

    Hello Guys,

    I've tried summerizing my experience with Carbide.c++ in my blog. You can find it First look: Carbide.c++ for Symbian/S60/S80/UIQ development

    Cheers.

    Your conclusion is that despite it being buggy and slow
    it is still usefull.

    I also tried it few days ago and found otherwise.

    I found it to be so slow (on my Pentium 4 2.2 GHz 1 GB RAM)
    that I cannot use the most essential operations,
    for which I need the IDE: code browsing and debugging.

    For example, F3 (Open Declaration) - one of the
    the most important feature for me when exporing code
    and fixing compilation errors -
    takes 5 - 10 seconds every time
    (and sometimes up to 30 seconds).

    Debugger with Emulator takes 1-2 seconds for each step -
    I am tired of watching the stupid "Pending..." message.
    And often it appears to lock up.

    I wonder whether Java based IDEs are feasible in theory.
    I used several for different platform and all were too slow.
    And since CPU speed does not increase anymore,
    they cannot say: just wait few years and it would be just fine.

    Well, did you try to disable some of the "features" like I suggested? Maybe even disable the C++ indexer, which takes a bit of a time to rebuild the code
    index each time, you save a modified file.

    For F3 (Open Declaration), I've seen it taking time, but not 30 seconds!

    As for Java based IDEs, blame it on IBM's hate for M$, and the so called platform independence crap. What pisses me most is the absolute inablity of all these big shot companies to come up anything as good as Visual Studio! Only Borland did it but now they are out of the scene.
