If your application runs in gdb and you work in i386-linux or i386-win32 you 
can use MSEide:


You need to write the syntax definition file for the source highlighter, a 
text file with the key words and the like. At the moment there are 
definitions available for Pascal, C/C++ and SQL only.
I am currently at work to accomplish the build interface more universal and 
less FPC specific.
