Hi guys,

So here it is; myself and a buddy from college have chosen to develop and app for android, however we prefer to code it in c++. As a result it's been a cumbersome start as the, what we thought would be, simple task of setting up the IDE to work properly with c++ is proving to be a task of which accomplishment merits celebrations in itself.

I'm looking for just some clear cut directions on how to have my IDE set up perfectly so I can begin to code in c++, and also if I could be warned of the hazards/difficulties in making an android app in c++.

I've already sprawled these forums, elsewhere and youtube for answers to little or no avail.

I'm sorry if these answers exist elsewhere on these forums, I did try and search for them but brain is a little fried/sleep deprived right now so I could have missed them.

Thanks in advance guys

There are two reasons you'll not get an answer to this question here,
but I will forward you.

First, Android development is built atop Eclise, not the other way
around. So, don't ask Android-related questions here. This is not the
forum you're looking for. (See sticky post at top of this forum:
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/225513/ .)

Second, questions about C/C++ development in Eclipse are asked in the
Eclipse CDT forum. (See other sticky post at top of this forum:
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/161206/ .)

Best of luck.
