I am used to Eclipse and Visual studio for development for Java and C#. I am looking forward to modify and compile some files in C in the Linux Wireless subsystem. The site recommends using Sparse but there isn't much documentation regarding it. Can Sparse be used as a development environment like Eclipse. Any documentation regarding this?

In the context of kernel development, sparse is a tool for checking kernel code, not a development environment. You can read more about sparse at the sparse homepage.

You may be able to use eclipse for your kernel development environment; as long as you can edit sources and run make, any development environment should be fine.

Thank you for the reply. Do you prefer or recommend any environment that helps with say autocomplete? –  user592748 Jun 18 '12 at 8:09
    
I prefer to "keep it simple" and use gvim and a terminal window. vim/gvim has support for completion: vim.wikia.com/wiki/Omni_completion –  Jeremy Kerr Jun 18 '12 at 8:37
    
Let me try it out –  user592748 Jun 18 '12 at 8:41
    
It's probably going a bit off-topic for this question, so I'd suggest checking out stackoverflow.com/questions/149321/… . –  Jeremy Kerr Jun 18 '12 at 8:51
