Edit: my bad. I didn't notice you had to switch From "Resource" to "C/C++".
Mods; feel free to delete this thread.


Hi

I felt like refreshing my programming knowledge (12 years later) and chose C++ and Eclipse. I installed latest Java, JDK, GCC and Eclipse. I wrote a simple Hello World program to test it out, but I'm unable to run it. I don't have a Run button, only External Tools. When I click it, my left hand browser is empty (I read online that Java should be an option, but it isn't there).

How do I go about fixing this?

Here's my eclipse.ini:

-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.java.product
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256M
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-vm
C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-Xms40m
-Xmx1024m


index.php/fa/19370/0/

Thanks in advance.

Did you build it first (the hammer icon on toolbar)?

You are now at 'External tools'. Close the boxes and pick from
the 'Run' menu 'Run Configurations' and add your executable there.

The configurations can also be accesses from the little triangle
on the right side of the run button icon.

For details, please see the Eclipse help pages at C/C++ Development
User Guide -> Tasks -> Running and debugging projects.
