    Configuring Eclipse for C programming

    Hi all,

    I want to configure Eclipse for C programming. I searched the net and found CDT for such purpose. But, I don't know which one is the best for the version that I have. Also, I don't know what are the steps to do to configure it properly.

    Information:

    Eclipse SDK
    Version 3.1.2
    Windows XP plus Cygwin

    BTW, is there any way to use GCC from Cygwin within Eclipse?

    There doesn't seem to be a version of CDT for Eclipse 3.1.X at the main site. http://www.eclipse.org/cdt/downloads.php

    You could get an older version. Google for cdt "eclipse 3.1". One mirror is this: http://europa-mirror1.eclipse.org/to...es/eclipse3.1/

    Or you could download the latest version of Eclipse and CDT together.

    BTW, is there any way to use GCC from Cygwin within Eclipse?
    Something like this? http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/new.../msg09888.html

    Why Eclipse? Do you just feel like it?

    Why Eclipse?
    Eclipse is good for students. I used to program C in any editor under Cygwin like vim, but for me, Eclipse works great in notifing any writting-error e.g fpoen() will be notified directly by eclipse unlike programming under vim where this will be notified only after compiling the source code. Of course, for professional people, this is not a big deal.
