Which are your favorite tools?

Postby Kambiz » June 20th, 2007, 10:18 am

As a developer we don't use only a compiler and sometimes we may need some other tools to perform our tasks.

It is nice to introduce the good tools we use to each other. I'm sure it improves our knowledge and productivity.

XVI32

XVI32 is the hex editor that I use. It's small, powerful, freeware, and powered by Delphi.

Here is its page:

And some links from my archive:

TortoiseSVN

TortoiseSVN is an open source sub version control as a Windows shell extension. It's very easy to use.

I have less than 10 bookmarks in my favorites, which are mostly news sites. A Google search is much quicker than finding a favorite in the list of favorites. :lol:

Tha best of tha best:

  • RapidSVN - Nicest SV management of all.
  • SciTE - Best notepad for all it's worth
  • Meld - Best diff and merge tool there is!
  • Code::Blocs - Cool IDE
