For a few years i've been sucessfuly using Eclipse to code in Java. Now, that I begun to learn C/C++ I thought it would be great to use familiar IDE such as Eclipse, but...

However I try to do it, Eclipse is not able to run my project.
Dev-Cpp has no problems with it. Click "Run" and it runs.
The only thing Eclipse is able to do is to show a messagebox with:
"The selection cannot be launched and there are no recent launches."
like it didn't have a C/C++ compiler!
What am I doing wrong?

If anyone could post a step-by-step instruction on how to compile and run a C/C++ code in Eclipse, I'd be very greatful.

The sticky posts long to be had at the top of this forum tell you to ask
such questions in the Eclipse CDT forum.
