C/C++ Editors under Mac OS


i had a problem writing C/C++ code on my new macbook, after some googling, i found some editors that allow me to do that

the first one is the XCode which comes with the original DVD of Mac Os, also can be downloaded from http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/

the second one which is netbeans 6, and can be downloaded from http://www.netbeans.org

and the third one is EClipse, and you can get it from http://www.eclipse.org

the last 2 programs above is open source, and they can run on any OS not limited to MAC only and they have a lot of cool plugins.

if anyone of you guys know other programs to code C and C++ under MAC, kindly post it in the comments.
