If I type

/* RETURN

in a C/C++ editor window, Eclipse automatically inserts

*
*/

on the next lines. Is there a way to turn this off permanently?

I guess with the menue item
windows/preferences/C/C++/Editors/Typing

it should be possible to deactive it.

That menu item gives me the option to disable auto-insertion of a lot of things, but not comment brackets, unfortunately. Not in my version anyway.

I'm not sure which eclipse version numbers to tell you about, but here is my guess:
Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers
epp.package.cpp
1.4.2.20120213-0813

I'm using Texas Instruments code composer studio 5.2.0.00069 which is Eclipse plus TI plug ins.

How would I install Eclipse alongside my TI installation to see whether the latest version of Eclipse now supports no auto adding of comment brackets, without risking the integrity of my existing installation?

There is no such thing as eclipse installer. So after downloading the latest eclipse CDT version, just extract it where ever you want and run from there. It won`t screw up your existing tool.
