sorry for the question, but after various research I could not find anything!

Opening eclipse from windows operating system is it possible to create a project in c language and compile the program for linux and not for windows?
If possible, can someone give me some guidance?

Thank you,

Windows cannot create a Linux executable. You need an actual target Linux box that will do the compilation. I usually share a Linux folder via samba, then create an Eclipse project in Windows on that share. Then in "C/C++ Build" project settings in Eclipse I send a remote build command to Linux using plink.
In Build Settings tab:
Build command: plink user@linuxbox

In Behavior tab something like:
Build: cd yourproject && make

Clean: cd yourproject && make clean

plink will redirect the compilation output from Linux back to Eclipse.
