It is beyond useless. It is aggravating. I'm coding in C++ an SDL application (a simple chess game) and whilst debugging, to view a value of a pointer to my class it takes about 15 seconds to load it. Other than that, I can't evaluate any expression because I get a bug: -var-create: unable to create variable object. Seriously, I moved from terminal (Joe's own editor) to CLion and the terminal environment wasn't much slower. I feel more comfortable debugging in gdb in a crappy terminal than dealing with this useless excuse of an IDE. It's embarassing.
