      "This program seemed to be the best solution to my problem. From what I have read myself and from what others have told me, it seems to be the "gold standard" in this category. If I continue working with this language in my current capacity, it seems like I will have to use this software at least occasionally, so I think it is best for me to use it as my "go to" choice."

      "Code::Blocks is easy to install and is an IDE that even beginners can use. It's light yet pretty powerful, and has all the features you'll need. Only downside is it's not 100% stable, for instance when you're saving/parsing code. But, it's open-source and free, and the developers work very hard to keep it going and continually improve and build upon it."
