Here is a screenshot of the problem: imgur.com/e2h2Z (i'm not allowed to post links as a new member)

Hi, I've seen a few threads on this very topic, but either the suggestions didn't work for me or they were too vague for me to understand.

I downloaded the C++ developer tools through eclipse and installed, and I'm trying to run the Hello World program that it comes with. I get the above error when I try to run. I have tried adding the -arch i386 flag to the linker and compiler to no avail. Finally, I made sure the mach-o 64 parser was checked.

I'm really stumped. I can run the program perfectly fine through command line with g++ as well as xcode. There is no output to the console at all when I try to run it.

Thanks.

Have you selected the correct binary parser?

As far as I know Mac needs Mach-O Parser...

Yup, using the mach-o 64 parser.

Did you build test.cpp within Eclipse? On the screen shot I miss some generated folders:

Press CTRL+B (or however this key is called on a Mac). After a successfully build you should see a folder "Debug" or "Release" in the Project Explorer view and a virtual Folder Binaries. Now right click on one of the binaries and select Run as > Local C/C++ Application.

Regards,
Klaus

Wow. That was it. Embarrassed

I assumed that the "play" button both built AND run. In Xcode it does both.

THANKS!!!!

Yes, this is how I resolved my problem.

I have a maverick.

I already tried to install the new common line tool from the Apple App Developer. It didn't work even if I chose MAC GCC.

I checked if I have my GCC. I have it. This is command is quite powerful.

Just use Command+B, and you can build all of them without knowing the binary files.

You should check if you have gcc with this command:

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gcc

the result should be

ln: ./gcc: File exists

If needed, you also need to download Command Line Tools, but I don't see it is needed.
