ZDNet: CodeWarrior For Linux: For Unix Neophytes Only [Review]

Aug 25, 1999, 16:51 (2 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Martin Heller)

"Metrowerks Corp.'s Code Warrior for Red Hat Linux GNU Edition brings CodeWarrior's graphical IDE to the Linux platform, easing the transition to Linux for C/C++ programmers with Windows or Macintosh experience but with no Unix background.

The product contains no compilers, assemblers, debuggers or linkers of its own but rather integrates with the free, public-domain GNU and EGCS (Experimental GNU Compiler Suite) tools supplied with both Red Hat Software Inc.'s Red Hat Linux and CodeWarrior. The same tools can be downloaded from egcs.cygnus.com.

Those new to Unix programming will welcome the ease of learning and use in CodeWarrior's simple, unified graphical programming environment, especially if they are familiar with CodeWarrior on another platform. However, programmers who are familiar with the Unix shell programming environment, make files, and the Visual Interface or EMACS editor will find little value in the product."
