Uh, Kile is great for LaTeX, but it's entirely the wrong tool for C/C++, as
it's designed around LaTeX throughout. While it can highlight C/C++, that's
because it's based on the KatePart, so Kate or KDevelop, which are actually
designed for programming and also use the KatePart, are probably a better
idea to use.

KDevelop is an extremely powerful IDE, but also has a pretty complex and
cluttered UI. Kate is a simple editor designed primarily for programmers,
it doesn't have all the IDE features KDevelop has though.
