I'm using Eclipse for C/C++ developers
Version: Indigo Service Release 2
Build id: 20120216-1857

I can't for my life figure out how to create a new C project, and execute that project successfully.

The tutorials I can find online are out of date or take steps that are unavailable to me.

Whenever I try to run a new source file it fails because the binary is not found.

My question boils down to: does anyone know how to create a simple "Hello world" from scratch in eclipse?

File->New->C++ Project
and then select Executable->Hello World

Hi Axel,

Thanks for the advice. When I follow these steps, I cannot run the code it produces. It doesn't recognize "#include <iostream>" or cout. When I try running, it can't find the binaries. Do you know how to configure a project with libraries and a compiler? I'm not sure why that isn't set up automatically when I create the project...

Thank you!

Did you install a compiler? Did you build the project before running? Did you read the CDT manual?

Hi Axel,

There is a lot of documentation, but it is either outdated or doesn't apply. Can you supply a link to the CDT manual?

Bump. Nothing about Eclipse is friendly to new users. The fact that 1200 people have viewed this page yet not a single person has given a worthwhile response is representative of the this problem.
I assume that OP, as well as with myself and the large number of others reading this, have already set-up a compiler. There's an Eclipse page on installing it. The problem is, after that, Eclipse still doesn't recognize basic includes like stdio.h even though the standard default main that's created with the project includes them. Default projects build automatically, since includes don't work, any call will not compile and eclipse throws "Launch Failed. Binary not found."

Don't tell us to read the manual. The manual would take literal days to read. If you want to export all of Eclipse's fundamental problems off this forum, at least specify where you want us to go.
