What is development environment of a Gentoox coder?

Post by JohnDead666 » Mon Aug 08, 2005 2:07 am

I've been programmer for what I consider to be almost forever but still I didn't do any work on linux or XBOX yet. So I've downloaded the quite impressive Gentoox Pro 2.0a edition.

And ... where do I start?? I am not the most familiar with Linux still.

What are the IDE or setup usually used by people who contribute seriously? I can't imagine myself editing on my work PC and ftp-upload file to compile them on the xbox...and what about debugging?

Is there remote software to allow a more intuitive development environment? Or is it basically good old days?

Can someone describe one usual setup?

Thank :)

Contribute to what?
My guess is that an IDE for any programming language is too heavy to run on an Xbox. I'd go for a text editor of your choice and helper applications like make, ant, or whatever exists for your language.

I don't believe there is a usual setup. Everyone has their own flavour. Me myself use emacs for all programming.
