I am not sure which platform I have, is says Java - Eclipse, it also says Eclipse IDE for java developers. I have c++ program whick makes calculations, upon entering a value it prints onto the screen, it all depending what has been entered, with RETURN key.

So, I would like to make an app for android tablet, where I would be able to enter numbers and it would make calculations and would printout into the screen messages,
so i have to convert c/c++ code into java. I am sure there is automatic converter out there.

What type of application should I make, please direct me so I do not waist my time.

Thanks in advance...

While there are C/C++ converters out there... most of them suck. The
only halfway decent ones cost real money ($100 and way, way up), and
there are no guarantees that you'll wind up with decent code when you
are done (though at least one place offers a money back guarantee for
the first 15 days).

You can find more than you ever wanted to know about by using Google to
search for "c to java converter".

You are really better off simply re-writing the code in Java. Using a
converter vs rewriting the code is like the difference between doing a
word-for-word translation of German to English, versus having someone
who speaks both languages doing a semantic translation.
