NetBeans C++ is Cool
By Weijun on Jan 16, 2009
So I fire up NetBeans and go download the C/C++ pack. It's a huge 5MB module that takes care of projects, editing, debugging all in one place. Install and restart.
I create a C/C++ project, there's a choice called "Use existing codes" so I choose the Kerberos src directory and click go. The magic happens: it loads all the files inside the directory, and then starts to call the configure script, and I see yes/no lines flying in the output window. Then, it starts to build the source! With no human intervention, it does everything from the beginning to the end, and I'm now seeing MAKE SUCCESSFUL.
Brilliant, isn't it? I open a terminal window and run the newly-built kinit command with DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH pointing to the lib directory, and it runs smoothly and correctly, showing the kinit help page.
Now I'm browsing the Kerberos codes, using the familiar Command+click to go through function calls and variable definitions. A real charm!
