I need an IDE for C++.  I need it to create code using the standard libraries (such as Posix) targeting both Windows and Unix.  Can I use Microsoft Visual Studio for this purpose?  I do not want to write managed code or MFC code on windows.

What is the best C++ IDE besides visual studio?

Thanks,

Michael

You can even use Visual Studio Express (which is for free) for that, get it from http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/downloads#d-2010-express or http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/downloads#d-express-windows-desktop - I actually use VS to write C++ code for Windows, Unix and/or OS X. Of course you cannot use it to compile for other platforms than Windows, but they all come with their own compiler. An alternative that runs natively on all these platforms would be Eclipse CDT, take a look at it at http://eclipse.org/cdt/ - it's also free. Also noteable: Dev C++ (http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html)
