    I'm after a free IDE to get back into programming with. Languages:

    VB - done a LOT with this before, but no Company to buy it for me yet!

    Delphi - wrote some test software with this in the past - controlling ovens, humidity controllers...

    C - not much experience with this, just helping check through other peoples' code.

    Pascal - done a LOT with this before, but don't know how popular it is these days!

    Welcome to the Programming forum! :)

    I'm more experienced with VB and C. For them, I'll give some links:
    Visual Studio Express works with both, or you can download for just one language.

    On the forums, you'll see me recommending different IDEs, depending on the time I posted. I've settled on plain Notepad and Notepad++ for most languages. For C++, I also am still using Quincy and Dev-C++. I've also heard good and bad reports of Code::Blocks, but haven't tried it, myself.

    Other threads in these forums you might want to look at are:
    The programming language sticky gives some advice on IDEs.
    Otherwise, looking for those 4 languages, I just found these old threads for C++: 2008, 2010, 2011

    I don't use Pascal and Delphi, so I don't have recommendations for them. A web search gave me this page: http://bytes.com/topic/python/answers/43497-python-ide-like-netbeans-delphi-ide
    I've heard about Eclipse, but haven't tried it.
