Hi

Use gvim instead of KEdit. Gvim is a notepad style editor but modelled on one of the most powerful source editors, vim.
KEdit works like a normal editor. So just open the file and start working.

There are many editors that can do that work for you. If you want something like a VC++ interface in Linux, use KDevelop.

I have written quite a few C apps under linux now, I started using GEdit, but I found that was very limited in it's options.  I now use and recommend Kwrite, which has Syntax highlighting, Bracket matching and viewable Line numbers(F11) which are all very helpful writing code, Line numbers are especially helpful when you compile with GCC and you have a large program, it enables you to locate a fault quickly.  With Kwrite and most editors, you must save your file with the required extension i.e program.c or program.cpp.... before the options stated above become active.

Hope this helps....

I don't think the editor will make any difference.

You'll spend more time learning makefiles/GUI/C++ most likely.

My advice is to get KDevelop3 which has lot's wizards to help you.
I'll also help you create makefiles and customize your projects.
It can work with QT Designer if you want to have GUI in your program.

And the best think is that it can understand C++. This means that as your project gets relatively big you'll find autocomplete/browse feature of KDevelop really nice - this is what all other editors lack.

Again KDepelop is not editor - it's Integrated Development Environment - which is like next step.

Good luck

Try Anjuta from http://www.anjuta.org
It is smaller and neater than KDevelop. Only, you will be programming using the GTK/Gnome environment in place of KDE.

If you have a package-based distro, you probably don't have the source code with you. You can grab the latest at http://lxr.kde.org/source/kdeutils/kedit/.

As everyone have said, source code is plain text and you can open it with many apps, Kedit and Kwrite being some of them.

Kate is even better - KDevelop uses it's part as the editor part. ;) So if you need a more lightweight, but very capable editor, use Kate (KDevelop>Kate>Kwrite>Kedit).
