A good IDE can help you manage and organize a local project.
Stick with vi/vim/gvim and "make" for a while.
Next add a revision control system (RCS) and patch to your tool kit.
Some class material takes advantage of a specific IDE to
manage the various bits in a class. In a 'good' class
they begin with small components. Then they begin to reuse
those components and build larger projects. If you are
working through such a tutorial -- go with the flow and
use what ever tool set they do.
Eclipse is nice in that it can run both on Linux and Windows....
For a Java class it is a natural...
Does anyone out there use Eclipse or another IDE with a distributed revision control system
like, git, mecurial, cvs, bitkeeper, etc...?
