Popular Source-Navigator IDE
eading Integrated Development Environment for UNIX and Windows now
available under open source license
SUNNYVALE, CA - July 20, 2000 - Red Hat, Inc. (NASDAQ:RHAT), the leader in
open source internet
infrastructure, announced today the release of source code for
Source-NavigatorTM, the leading Integrated Development Environment for UNIX
and Windows. Source-Navigator, along with Insight, the graphical debugger
based on gdb, and gcc, the Open Source compiler, forms a fully functional
graphical integrated development environment that is used by developers to
edit their source code and compile, link and debug their applications.
"Source-Navigator is a powerful tool for analyzing large amounts of source
code, and it is useful in both developing new projects and deciphering
legacy code," said Michael Tiemann, Red Hat Chief Technical Officer. "By
releasing the source code to Source-Navigator under the terms of the GPL,
Red Hat reinforces its commitment to the open source community of developers."
In addition to being a powerful tool used by developers to compile, edit
and debug source code for their applications, Source-Navigator has many
browsing capabilities that enable developers to do things like display
class hierarchies and cross-reference relationships. For download
