Default C++ IDE for OpenBSD?

I was wondering if anyone knew a good C++ IDE for OpenBSD. It should use standard ANSI/ISO standard C++ and it needs to work on OpenBSD 4.4. I don't use a 64bit version of OpenBSD, so 64bit support isn't required, but it would be good.

I heard Dev-C++ now works with Linux, so I went onto their site but I couldn't find a BSD download. I couldn't find a BSD download for Code::Blocks either. Has anyone tried these with the OpenBSD Linux kernel emulation?

I don't care if I have to compile it, or if it's just a binary download. If it uses Vi syntax all the better, but that isn't really a requirement.

So, does anyone know any good ones?

If ctags understood C++ classes, the operating system would be an entire C/C++ IDE :-)

packages should be available for eclipse-sdk with the correct plugins (CDT) added, geany, netbeans with the correct stuff added, all should be usable for your task (I'd suggest geany). You might also check out Vi Improved (vim), GNU Emacs (emacs), and XEmacs (xemacs).

(OpenBSD as an IDE: ksh environment, make tool, assembler, compiler, linker, debugger, profiler, tags file generator, developer documentation, multiple code editors (ed, ex, vi, mg), and several standard libraries; using window or screen would also be handy.)

Personally I consider graphical IDE's pointless, as TerryP said.. the entire operating system is one big IDE.

That doesn't mean that none exist, devel/geany appears to be available.

As for 3rd party projects not distributing binaries, that's to be expected.. 3rd party software should be obtained via the ports tree.
