I really don't like code folding or anything that interferes with the text being where i expect it to be. Most editors have a shortcut to jump to a specific line number and that's sufficient to quickly jump around the file most of the time.

I like the fact that I can fold away sections of code that don't compile because of pre-processor stuff, like "#if !DEBUG". They're not even included in compilation, so just put them away...

Also Resharper has a File Structure tool similar to Eclipse's Outline and it takes regions into account (that screenshot has a wierd choice of regions, but it gives you an idea), so they're all neatly separated. Makes it a lot more readable.

And using #regions force me to organize my code in coherent blocks.
But hey, whatever works for you. Embarrassed

You know how you make one small mistake in code using the stl, and suddenly the compiler lists 20-some errors all of which point to some header file that's part of the library code and clearly *not* where the error is?

I don't like that.

I also take umbrage at the terrible error messages related to templates in general. That, and the fact that I can't figure out how to make xcode raise an error when it finds uninitialized variables being used. Almost makes me want to write a helper class just to initialize POD types.

One of the frequently asked features for my csharp mode for Emacs is code folding. Which is a pain in the ass to figure out in Lisp. *sigh* One of these days...

But, I don't like #region for "public instance methods" ...

If you look at my C# code, you'll see I'll do regions like "Logging", "Sprite Management", "Collection Overrides", etc.

I'd like to see a sort of collapsed view in a different window. Gravious showed me the Code Definition Window or whatever it is in VC++ 2008, that looked nice.

Xcode support for allegro sucks.

Allegro built-in audio library sucks.

I've little idea how to get the third party allegro audio libraries working in OSX.

I have no idea how to manually toss together .app files, whatever about universal binaries.

Allegro gui stuff sucks.  I really could do with some nice gui stuff now, but it's seeming that it's going to be easier to do everything by hand.

You could just split it into multiple files?

This was when I was working on a massive huge commercial game and I wasn't going to run around reorganizing things lest it all fall apart and burn around me.

Also, it probably wasn't *that* large, I'm just incredibly impatient.

Is that even possible in Emacs?  I don't think I've seen code folding in any emacs mode, ever.

my god, at my work they are using that code folding shit and because there is NO documentation about any of the code (and comments are very, vary scarce) and it is a large complex project it is very hard to follow.

now, combine that with the fact that ctrl+f does NOT search within closed fold things.... holy SHIT I am having some trouble! Tired

Wait, what?  Are you serious?  What IDE?  That just can't be right, that would be completely friggin' stupid.

Code:
1>Embedding manifest...
1>CVTRES : fatal error CVT1103: cannot read file
1>LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt

That was the only error code VC++ 2005 gave me when building. The solution was completely unrelated to manifests. :D

Code folding makes me grumpy, because the need of it makes me realize I have too much code in a single module, that I should redesign.

 AngryI hate Eclipse.  When I press the big green run button it should be pretty obvious that I want to run the main application and not the last file I edited and it should be pretty obvious that I want a Python Run like I wanted the last 400 times and not a Jython run or any of the other choices.  When I want to do the less obvious things I won't mind going down 7 layers of menus.
