I'm trying to switch compilers. I downloaded Eclipse and am able to get Java code to compile. I also downloaded the C++ plug-in; however, I can't get the C++ code to compile.
I suppose I have to "hook Eclipse up" to some C++ compiler. I downloaded a gcc compiler. Now my problem is in setting up all the paths to tell Eclipse where to find the includes, the compiler exe, and the like.
Does anyone have some (detailed) steps how to do set this up?
I've downloaded and installed Cygwin, the CDT, and Eclipse. I've also set my system PATH varible for XP. I can get a "Hello world" program to compile and run from the command line, but I can't get it to build in Eclipse.
Here's the error I get in Eclipse:
I suppose I have to set some properties in Project->Properties.
