    I've been trying to get eclipse to work with C++ but I just can't seem to get it working. There is a minGW thing for eclipse that you can download as an extension but in the end I just can't figure how to set it up. I like eclipse's debugger (well for java at least). I'd love to see a net-beans minGW extension or something.

    I've got Insight. I realize I'm not changing anything. Just providing a user interface to GDB, since quiet frankly Dev-C++ debugger UI... sucks.

    Insight makes using GDB a breeze. Quiet a rich wrapper, if you ask me. However, I believe VC+++ 2005 is still superior as far as the interface is concerned. The actual technical details of both debuggers though are not something I can discuss (being myself somewhat new to C++ and all).

    Well, I'm sorry. I didn't check what Eclipse was. Skimmed through your post and thought you were talking about a debugger that could in theory be compatible with minGW. Eclipse is much more than that.

    My bad.

    Eclipse is just an ide that I used for java, so is netbeans. eclipse has an in-program download thing that could download the C++ library to support creating C++ programs on it. I think it also had debugger support, but I never got it to work, and all the documentation is beyond me.

    I have used eclipse CDT with cygwin and it has worked great for me.

    Ahh, I downloaded the CDT without doing the cygwin thing. Do I have to install the whole cygwin or can I use mingw?

    I tried using mingw, but I ran into a few problems so I used cygwin instead.
    I installed gcc/g++, gdb etc... with the cygwin install.

    I'm a little lost, I see this [attachment]...but which one do I chose to install?

    I think this is why I stopped trying last time.

    Install all the basic stuff(cat, grep, etc...), and any other kind of apps that you want... I think you can select entire packages, but most of the stuff you have to select one by one.

    sadly could you be more basic than that? cat, grep? Where are those located, I've always just been an ide guy, never delt with actual compilers or anything outside of it.

    All the basic unix apps should be either in System or Utils. I happen to not have Cygwin on this particular computer, so I'll install it now and give you some more detailed explainations on what I did.

    cool, I'm checking out the eclipse CDT wiki and it has a section on using cygwin with it.

    this is so confusing.

    Yeah, based on Cygwins Setup help, all of the base applications should be automatically selected. Anything else like gcc, gdb, emacs... you have to select yourself. I'm not the person to really ask on what to choose. Consult with one of the local board Unix experts to find out what the must have apps are. Otherwise you can just select all of them one by one.
