I'm writing a project and before I proceed to the next stage, I would like to make a kind of backup of what the project looks like at this present stage. If this was a text editor I would use the 'save as' option, but there is nothing like it available in Eclipse.
Another alternative I tried was making a copy of the entire project. This copy would, however, not load into Eclipse.

How do you do this?

You can just back up the entire project.

If you copy the project (unzip, etc.) somewhere else, you need only
launch Eclipse with any workspace, then use File -> Import -> General ->
Existing Projects into Workspace, then navigate to that project and
choose it.

This can be done from any computer you like: Eclipse projects are
portable. Please note that workspaces are NOT portable, so don't try.

Best of luck. Come back here if you have trouble.

I have had the same types of issues, and I am so grateful I managed to find this thread. I am very new to C++ programming and Eclipse. I love the program, but I would say that it requires a degree of knowledge and skill from the very beginning. It isn't exactly super friendly and easy to use for a newbie like myself. I appreciate your taking the time to post this thread Marten. You have saved me a ton of time, energy, and headache. I appreciate your posting a response Russell as it has also saved me countless hours or banging my head against the computer.
