I have an existing piece of C with a Makefile. I just discovered that cygwin lacks a debugger, so I thought that I would use Eclipse instead. (I have used Eclipse in the past for Java, and like it very much.) But even with the C/C++ kit installed, it wants to use cmake to build, and I cannot figure how to tell it to use make instead.

Cygwin installs by default only a minimum set of packages. Are you sure that the debugger is not in an optional package which you did not install?

Eclipse does not go any further without the base debugger, as it is using the gdb debugger as the base tool. Eclipse just offers a good windowed front-end to it.

Thanks, but cygwin setup does not allow me to install gdb or cmake. I select them hit Next, and it says nothing to install. The bigger question remains: how do I change Eclipse 2019-03 to use make not cmake?
