This has been a pain in the neck for a while, I've talked to a lot of
people and haven't made much progress with this.

1) The cygpath error. But I've seen the bugzilla entry and I'm
anticipating this will get fixed. I don't like seeing errors :P

2) Mingw/Mingw GDB. Even when I configure the commands from g++ to
mingw32-g++ and etc., it does not work. I get some "referring to non
existent file" error. Plus, I shouldn't have to configure each and every
project like that. There should be a settings where I can permanently make
it like that. Cygwin works beautifully, debugger and everything, I think
CDT was programmed with Cygwin in mind but not Mingw. Internal build
works, and I would at least like to make all projects default internal
build. But no, that's not possible, right now..

I know it isn't too much extra effor to click internal build, but if it
could be done automatically it would make CDT a bit more perfect...

Try looking at the Zylin plugin from :
http://www.zylin.com/embeddedcdt.html

I think many of the enhancements in this plugin are going to be in CDT4.0.

Yes, proper MinGW integration is coming in CDT 4.

Thank you.

Check out my earlier post on cygwin and the gdb source not found problem. I
dont use mingw but if I'm not mistaken mingw is partly based on cygwin. The
problem I ran into was that the CTD could not find the files needed because
it couldnt map C:/ to /cygdrive/c. So might be able to find a similar work
around.

Actually, its the other way around. Cygwin uses mingw.

Actually, neither is true. Cygwin and MinGW are separate. Cygwin has
made MinGW available as part of it's distrbution but they are separate
compilers.

Yes, we need to find a way to automate this mapping so you don't have to
enter it all the time. There is a bug open on it, feel free to
contribute ideas to it.
