That's my general experience with Eclipse and Java too.

That's quite a few pages. Doesn't CDT have a nice beginners tutorial?

Often it comes down to the number of dollars spent making it easy and
often that's related to the number of dollar of profit one gets

With JDT, things just build, so again, this must be a CDT issue not a

No doubt the location of the binaries that the compiler produced. With
