Write code with Code::Blocks

Code::Blocks is a very good free integrated development environment (IDE) for writing in C, C++ and Fortran. It has been around for a long time and is recommended as the learning environment on sites such as Learn C++.

Installation

To install Code::Blocks open up Konsole and type,

sudo apt install codeblocks build-essential

The build-essential package may already be installed but is required if it is not.

Code::Blocks can be found under the Applications Menu at Applications/Development. After starting the IDE for the first time it will ask you which compiler you wish to use. If build-essential has been installed then the GNU GCC compiler will be available.
