Recommended IDE?

Greetings everyone,

I was wondering if there are recommendations for an IDE to use with CUDA on Linux that support syntax hightlight, auto-complete and CUDA keywords?


I am using Eclipse with CUDA 1.1 on OpenSUSE 10.2 and it works fine. It is very useful for debugging in emu mode.

Could you please supply a quick start of how to setup Eclipse to actually build the NVIDIA samples from within eclipse? The guides found on the forum here and here on how to setup Eclipse are not really clear to me.

Coming from Windows and Visual Studio makes Linux and Eclipse a mystery.

It has been a while since I used Eclipse, but when I was using it I created a “custom makefile project” (I forget the name). You just point Eclipse to the directory where it needs to run “make” to compile your code.

I have since switched to Kdevelop after getting fed up with the uber-slow performance of Eclipse. It has a similar “custom makefile project” setup.

Thanks for the hint. It’s easy once you know where to look. ;)
