Is there a code editor that offers code completion and shows the function prototype for SDL?

I ask for an automatic completion like in Notepad++, that shows functions list after like 3 characters have been entered and then show the prototype of the function when the parentheses are opened.

Eclipse offer kind-of what I ask, but it requires Ctrl+Space to activate it.

Try QtCreator.

Or KDevelop if you use KDE.

If you need something more lightweight use CodeLite.
