"At certain points, CodeWarrior's X interface performed
erratically; typed text sometimes appeared in a spot other than
next to the blinking prompt. However, such glitches were fairly
rare, more minor inconveniences than showstoppers. The product
includes a built-in text editor for editing program files, and
while we would have preferred to use emacs, we found the built-in
editor very flexible.
However, we were disappointed with CodeWarrior's Makefile Import
wizard, which reads a makefile generated by another application and
automatically converts it into a CodeWarrior project. This feature
could potentially save hours of re-creating existing projects in
CodeWarrior. Unfortunately, we found during testing that the wizard
could successfully migrate only small makefiles--larger or more
complex makefiles, especially those involving projects within
subdirectories, wouldn't migrate at all or caused the CodeWarrior
IDE to crash.
CodeWarrior is a terrific product for any application developer
looking for a Visual Studio-like IDE for a Linux environment.
Developers in the Microsoft arena who want a similarly robust
development environment for Linux should seriously consider
purchasing this product. CodeWarrior is listed at $149 but is
widely available for less."
