I'm using Eclipse for Java and C++ development. The Java development is smooth, but I'm not sure how to deal with using the C++ environment, especially since I'm on Windows and targeting Linux. I load the Git repository into Eclipse and most of the files have a million errors about things not being defined that are in the standard Linux .h files.

Can someone point me to some good information on how to set up Eclipse on Windows for targeting Linux development? In addition, I'd absolutely love to use the Eclipse debugger for remote debugging of a Linux target. Is this possible?

Thanks for any help you can provide,
Curt

You could consider taking the easy way out and developing on Linux right
on your Windows host--in Sun VirtualBox.
