I have an item "Build targets" in "Project explorer " pane.
I was looking in "Eclipse help " for SIMPLE explanation what it is / does and how it got subitem "TSET" attached in the tree.

Found nothing explaining what is the purpose of "building targets" in C++.

It allows you to execute targets within a makefile.
Not much use for Managed Build projects where the only
two targets, all and clean, are accessible from the menus.
If you write your own makefile with multiple targets, it can be a big help.

I am not using Managed C++ , just started with plain C++ project and letting the IDE / make to do its job.

I know this response is a little late, but are you confusing "Managed C++", the Microsoft C++/CLI stuff, with a "Managed Build" which, in Eclipse, is where you let Eclipse work out what files need to be given to make? This is where you select "File" -> "New C/C++ Project" and choose the "C++ Managed Build" option in the dialog that becomes visible.

The alternative referred to by David is the "Makefile Project" in that dialog box, where you manage your own build targets.
