The features are described in detail with screenshots in the Astrobe Help
file. The download file size of the *entire* system (IDE, Editor, compiler,
linker, builder, help files, source code examples, documentation etc. etc.)
is less than 2Mb and can be installed in less than a minute so it doesn't
take too much effort for anybody to evaluate these features: 


However, I'm guessing from your comments in many of your previous posts here
that the fact that it requires Windows would render it as no good for *your*
requirements ;-)
