helo group,

i've been trying the past 2-3 years to find the most usable and nice ide
for c/c++ code writing. I've been through vim/vim + plugins/emacs +
different modes/anjuta/kdevelop/codeblocks/eclipse/netbeans ... every
single one of them has at least one drawback.

In short words, i am looking for an ide that can do this:
- syntax highlighting
- autocomplete (on the fly, not on demand, and maybe smart? - identify
structures/classes )
- concurrent editing of multiple files (splitting)
- tabs or buffer list
- file browser
- project manager
- symbol list/browser current editing buffer
- regex search/replace
- flexible build options that include scons, not just makefile
- code folding (with detection of blocks)
- lightweight/ergonomic interface (i dislike space being occupied by the
bar that displays the line numbers, with a padding of 10px for example)

i don't desire gdb or valgrind integration, but would be a +

does anyone know the answer to this ultimate question? I keep comparing
different editors with the microsoft's visual studio, that is not by far
as powerful as emacs but it just plain and simple does the job. They
will reach a milestone when the brackets matching will actually work,
but despite small inconveniences, i find it to be very close to what i
am looking for.
kdevelop also seemed very close to what i wanted, but somehow the fonts
or the dpi make it very "crowded", i get very little space for the code.
On the other hand netbeans is a good example of how the interface should
be arranged, but java driven ide tends to stop being able to respond in
 tolerable time.

i am on the edge of despair, and i am willing to try even a commercial
Anyone had some very positive experience with a specific ide?
