Programming tools do not only help in the development and debugging of applications and software but they may also be required to access different types of resources such as hardware components or microprocessors.

Many programming tools are open source which provides an inexpensive alternative to commercial products, many of which offer free versions with limited capabilities. Open source is beneficial for commercial software development because it increases the possibility for more people to review the code and identify potential errors, or security vulnerabilities.

In coding, a program is developed from a sequence of instructions that are written in the form of text. The instructions are informed by a type of computer programming language, as well as the software developer’s experience with the use of this language. There are numerous types of software developers, including those who specialize in computer hardware, those who focus on web development, and those who deal only with the design process.

An example of software that helps developers is code editors.

Code editors is software that people use to write code. These are often used by programmers to write codes for programs, websites, etc. They are mostly text-based, but can also be used with programming languages like C++ and Java through plug-in extensions.

Code editors help developers in several ways such as:

  • helping write code faster by highlighting matching parentheses. It also helps with color-coding, which makes it easier to distinguish between elements like comments and keywords.
  • can count the number of letters and words used in a program, and automatically check for errors.
  • many code editors come with additional features like allowing multiple files to be opened at once, and the ability to easily switch between them. Not only that, but code editors can also include automatic backup so you won’t lose your work if there is a problem during the saving process.
  • they can help you find all the possible errors in your program. These are important features especially when programming because an error in one line of code may cause problems in other lines, or even in your whole program.
