Any rancher know of an ide that will run well
on a 64mb notebook. I have been using jbuilder trial but that is not a long term option.
Thanks....

Assuming you're running Windows, try JCreator. You might also try JEdit, which is cross-platform, written in Java.

Good grief -- I don't even know of an operating system (including Linux!) that will run well on 64MB...

Would you like to try our Tool JawaBeginer.
It is written in Java and it is fast.

How about colorForth about 2K (yes, K) bytes including the operating system, language runtime, compiler and editor.

Have you tried colorForth Frank?
I may just drag an old 5MB 286 laptop from the cellar an see if it'll run on it!

Just out of curiosity, do you hear the hamsters running on the wheel so they can keep the power going?
I have 512 MB of RAM and my PC is STILL slower than s**t when I run an IDE, namely JBuilder8. Imagine that!

I've run an IDE in 6MB (that's *6*, not *64*) of RAM, but that was for C and on an Amiga 4000, which was a non-virtual memory machine whose OS was a lot more memory-efficient than Linux or Windows. Java, however, is a pig and I don't recommend running an IDE on less than an 600MHz CPU or 256MB of RAM. On my 128MB 380MHz laptop, it's excruciating.
The closest I can get to 64 MB Java is that I run Emacs with jde on a 96MB P200, Red Hat Linux 7.2. That's OK for editing. But debugging will cause it to page heavily.

Try Gel. This IDE is free but does'nt have a GUI Builder. It works fine even with 48MB of RAM.
