When I write .NET code I have Resharper to increase my productivity and help me generate and refactor code. I miss such a tool when I program in C++, I knew such tools exist but because I spend more time writing managed code I don’t want to purchase them.
It seems that in C++ where every method is written at least twice (header and code) the environment is in desperate need of a proper code generation/refactor tool.
Last week I discovered that Refactor for C++ is shipped as part of DevExpress DXperience suite – for free!
It has a lot of much needed goodies:
- Rename all instances (same as R# F2)
- Change method’s parameter order
- Extract code to method
A must tool for every C++ developer.
