"Platform" is the base for tooling like JDT, CDT (C/C++ dev) etc. You
could install CDT via Help > Install New Software... but since Indigo is
already more than a year old, I suggest that yo download the latest CDT
package from the official website: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-cc-developers/junosr1
