Hello !

BCC32C & BCC32X Are C++ Compilers From Embarcaredo (Borland CPP).
How do I configure them in Eclipse IDE For C/C++?


Thanks,
Mukesh L.

Unless they have options similar to GCC it won't be easy
without writing your own toolchain.

The Eclipse toolchains expect GCC or a derivative.

The toolchains are mostly used to create makefile recipes
but you could write your own makefile.

You'll have to modify the error processors and
the providers that scan the build log for things like include paths
unless you provide them manually to make the Indexer works.

Which meaning, the only way simple way is download MinGW 64Bit on my Windows 10. Right ?

If you've got the source for their macros and templates; have their libraries;
and want Eclipse to generate the makefiles, yes, especially if you aren't
using any of their special syntax.

On the other hand, you could write your own makefile and
manually enter the path(s) to the includes for the Indexer.

But that assumes the Indexer can actually process them.
You may need to turn off indexing and only use Eclipse for editing.
Changing the error parser to use Borland error messages is just
changing a regex.

It's been 20+ years since I've used a Borland product
and I can't remember if the special syntax is built into the compiler
or if it is implemented with macros and templates but regardless
I would go with the latter and turn off indexing if needed. YMMV.

OTOH, how are you going to do window layouts in Eclipse?
I thought Embarcadero has its own IDE and a GUI for window layout.
Seems to be the simplest solution . Why not use it?

Hello David..

Embarcaredo (Borland) does have its own IDE.. (RAD Studio) and that seemed more complex to me. but, I have been using Eclipse for 10 years now... all this time, i was using for Java.. i have not started using for C/C++..

yes, it does have its library..

so, let me try and generate makefile for it.

I will not need window layout.. i do not do much of graphics or ui development.. Most of my programs are -- reading/writing files, and mostly DOS based that can run from command prompt.
