Eclipse for C/C++ Developers

The Eclipse C/C++ Development Tools (CDT) runs on top of the Eclipse Platform. The CDT provides advanced functionality for C/C++ developers, including:

  • C/C++ Editor (basic functionality, syntax highlighting, code completion etc.)
  • C/C++ Debugger (APIs & Default implementation, using GDB)
  • C/C++ Launcher (APIs & Default implementation, launches and external application)
  • Parser
  • Search Engine
  • Content Assist Provider
  • Makefile generator

You need to use the Callisto Discovery Site to add the CDT features.

What do you need?

Eclipse 3.2 is required for Callisto. There is no upgrade path from previous versions of Eclipse.
