Code::Blocks is a free open source cross platform C, C++ and Fortran Integrated Developing Environment (IDE)

Quote
The open source, cross platform, free C, C++ and Fortran Integrated Developing Environment.

Code::Blocks is a free C, C++ and Fortran IDE built to meet the most demanding needs of its users. It is designed to be very extensible and fully configurable.

Finally, an IDE with all the features you need, having a consistent look, feel and operation across platforms.

Built around a plugin framework, Code::Blocks can be extended with plugins. Any kind of functionality can be added by installing/coding a plugin. For instance, compiling and debugging functionality is already provided by plugins!

Special credits go to darmar for his great work on the FortranProject plugin, bundled since release 13.12.

We hope you enjoy using Code::Blocks!

        Borland C++ 5.5
        Open Watcom
        ...and more
    Very fast custom build system (no makefiles needed)
    Support for parallel builds (utilizing your CPU's extra cores)
    Multi-target projects
    Workspaces to combine multiple projects
    Inter-project dependencies inside workspace
    Imports MSVC projects and workspaces (NOTE: assembly code not supported yet)
    Imports Dev-C++ projects

 
Debugger:

    Interfaces GNU GDB
    Also supports MS CDB (not fully featured)
    Full breakpoints support:
        Code breakpoints

        Breakpoint conditions (break only when an expression is true)
        Breakpoint ignore counts (break only after certain number of hits)
    Display local function symbols and arguments
    User-defined watches (support for watching user-defined types through scripting)
    Call stack
    Disassembly
    Custom memory dump
    Switch between threads
    View CPU registers

 
Interface:

Build system
Code::Blocks implements a custom build system with very important features: ultra-fast dependencies generation, build queues and parallel builds are the most important ones to mention.
   
Debugging
The debugging subsystem has been greatly enhanced in the latest version. Automatic/manual watches, code/data breakpoints, call stack, disassembly listing and memory dumps are only few of its features.
