View Full Version : Editor to remotely manage C++ code

How do I edit / manage C++ code remotely?

Can some C++ guru please let me know how to connect / manage C++ code located on a remote server?

Currently I use Putty to open a telnet session to the remote box (linux) and edit the code using vi editor. I'd like to know if there is a some other way to do so (like for e.g. Eclipse or NetBeans IDE). I do not want to download the entire code base to my local box which is a Windows XP box. I just want to continue coding on the server as project makefiles are linux specific. Also if I can checkout/checkin my code from SVN or CVS from within my editor that would really help.

Use a VPN connection to connect to the same network as the server and then just share the code directory out with samba and connect to the samba share from your Windows machine.

You can still issue make commands through putty and then edit the files through the share directly on your workstation.
