far manager as IDE

Post by mymailid4reg » Sat 04 Oct, 2014 15:38

i have seen some programmers doing all the coding, compiling and exectuing right within the Far manager itself.
Can anyone help me in letting me know how to do that? Like what are the required plugins and how to go through the process?
Thanks in advance.

True Template (FAR 1,2,3): code templates, compilation, navigation through errors.
Editor Word Completion (FAR 1,2,3).
FarDebug (FAR 2): GDB integration.

i meant compiling and then running. I have a ".c" file. I want to compile that from within far manager and then get the output displayed.

There may be other plugins or macros.

I myself do not use Far as IDE, so I can't, sorry.
In general I don't think it is a good idea (unless you are very proficient with Far, its plugins and macros).

Open the file in editor, then F11 - True Template - Ext command - Compile release [GCC] (this should be bound to a macro for convenience).

i did try that already. When i used Compile release [GCC], it had Compiler options set to "-W -Wall -pedantic" and link libraries set to "-lgdi32".
should i leave them unchanged? When i had those values, i was not getting the output. I gave a simple hello world program in c.The error i got was
"rm is not recognised as internal or external command". Should i make any changes to compiler options and link libraries?

External commands menu is configured in true-source-c++.xml, see <Language File="*.c" ...> and <Language File="*.cpp,*.cc,*.c++" ...> sections. By default there is a command "rm -f =N.o" for cleaning object files after build. You could either use "del =N.o" instead or install MSYS.

This can't be if you've replaced "rm -f" with "del", at least it would be some other error than "rm is not recognised".
