I have been through the C/C++ Development User Guide "Getting Started" 'folder' at * (aitch tee tee pee colon slash slash help dot eclipse dot org slash indigo slash index dot jsp) and was able to successfully create a Hello World app that ran, but now I have been stymied by creating my own, from my textbook for my class in C.

Am I missing some obvious C only section there, due to my cluelessness and virginal newbieness?

I typed in the code from page 35 of C By Discovery and tried to follow the same procedures detailed in the tutorial that directed me to use mostly canned code, but Eclipse finds nothing to build or run.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help.

Hopelessly Lost, But Making Good Time

P.S. I am on a MacBook running OS X 10.6.x and I would go to the school for help with this, but IT there is almost all Windows and largely clueless. Honest. Very nice people, but not a good source for help with basic questions, I fear this one might give them nightmares.

* P.P.S. Sorry, no links allowed in first five posts.

P.P.P.S. Here are error msgs:

When I try to build.
**** Build of configuration Debug for project CbyDpg35 ****

Nothing to build for project CbyDpg35

When I try to run

The selection cannot be launched, and there are no recent launches.

I don't know how you did setup your project and what's wrong with it. But I would suggest that you create a simple Hello World project (File->New Project...) and then replace the code in hello.c with your sample code.
