What is Software Development Tools?


A software development tool is a computer program that software developers use to create, debug, maintain, or otherwise support programs and applications. The most basic tools are a source code editor and a compiler or interpreter. More sophisticated tools include debugger or profiler. Tools may be discrete programs, executed separately – often from the command line – or may be parts of a single large program, called an integrated development environment (IDE).
