a) eclipse dumps output to a "Console View" which is very slow
b) eclipse parses the output, which is very slow
Yes, both are slow (but you get a list of errors/warnings!)
c) [your idea here]
Because Eclipse does not know which binaries were changed/created during the external build it has to scan the entire workspace. You can limit the search scope in Project Properties->C/C++ General_>Paths and Symbols->Output location
Q2: Eclipse supposedly is using the command "/usr/bin/gmake -j4" to perform the build. Why when I type this command in an xterm, I do not see the same output as Eclipse shows in the "Console View"?
a) Eclipse does not use the listed "build command" to perform the build. It uses a bunch of secret stuff.
Eclipse does exactly what you tell it! For me it seems that you called make in different directories. Therefore different Makefiles are actually build!
