Hi every time I try to start a new project in eclipse, when i get it all set up it returns 4 warnings and an error.
They read: Description Resource Path Location Type
1. Program "make" is not found in PATH New C++ C/C++ Problem
2. Error launching external scanner info generator (g++ -E -P -v -dD /Users/Steven/Documents/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.cdt.make.core/specs.cpp) New C++ [Discovery Options] page in project properties C/C++ Problem
3. Error launching external scanner info generator (gcc -E -P -v -dD /Users/Steven/Documents/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.cdt.make.core/specs.c) New C++ [Discovery Options] page in project properties C/C++ Problem
4. Program 'g++' is not found in $PATH New C++ [Discovery Options] page in project properties C/C++ Problem
5. Program 'gcc' is not found in $PATH New C++ [Discovery Options] page in project properties C/C++ Problem


What is wrong? I tried deleting eclipse entirely and reinstalling it and it did not fix the issue. Is it something I did or is the program missing something? Also when I try to tell it to run the new project just to see what happens it says Launch Failed. Binary not found. Any clues would be greatly appreciated. I'm really lost as to whats going on and I'm trying to do some practice programming before my exam tomorrow but I can't with the program itself not working properly.

You have to install a toolchain (compiler, linker, debugger etc.)!
