04 - Common Tools in an IDE

 1. IDE stands for Integrated Development Entity



 2. What does an IDE do? It brings together all the tools necessary for coding into one application.
Here's an interesting clip on IDEs if you're interested in delving furher



 3. The image below is showing a typical IDE



 4. One of the tools of an IDE is:

  an ASCII table

  a code editor

  None of these apply

  a physical programmer

 5. A good code editor will come with tools like:

  filling in blocks, picture recognition, pen writing

  code completion, line numbering, keyword colouring etc.

  the ability to write directly in machine code

  facial recogintion, physical touch sensors, complex graphical game design

 6. A run time environment emulates a CPU within the IDE. This lets you …

  run code without having to compile it and saves a lot of time

  run code directly in machine code

  run code through all core processors

  actually pass code through the CPU

 7. The 'run time environment' is sometimes called the:

   output console

  None of these apply

  input minch

  constant executioner

 8. A good IDE will have a debugger which is used to …

  test the code for errors

  test the code for physical bugs like moths or spiders

  entirely remove any trace of errors

  catch the errors at the machine code stage and destroy them

 9. Features of a good debugger include:

  using dots and lines to confuse the bugs

  stopping errors from occuring ever

  using blockage tunnels that prevent syntax errors from occuring

  single stepping through code, creating break points, highlighting errors in a colour etc.

 10. A translator of some sort will also be part of an IDE- either an inbuilt compiler or interpreter
