With all due respect, IDEs are not wheelchairs that figure out the complexity of your program. They are tools that remove the menial, tedious, unproductive, uncreative tasks involved with programming on the CLI. In addition, a good IDE provides a level of support that empowers, not satiates, the developer.

The most compelling example of this, for me, is the ability to aggressively refactor projects and have the editor monitor broken variable references and method invokations across the whole project. Such radical changes on the CLI are big, risky commitments - generally avoided in favour of hacks.

As a human (as well as a programmer) IDEs are a huge step forward in terms of HCI. This may be a bitter pill if you have invested significant time and effort in becoming a vim-meister, but that old crufty UNIX engineer stuff is so passe.

Granted, a lot of IDE benefits are geared towards compiled, strongly typed, Object-Oriented languages. If you dont need that functionality, fine, but to suggest that those that do are in some way disabled is pretty ignorant.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
