RE: [cdt-dev] Trying to run simple hello world

No problem, Beth. You have entered into the world of evil Cygwin ;). (Again
I apologize to the cygwin developers. They're good people, just marching in
a different direction.)

The trick is to add a path mapping to the source locations and map
/cygdrive/c to C:/. There has been some effort to make this automagic but I
can't remember if this made it in or not. I'd recommend this as a first
step. If that doesn't work, then yes, please open a bug.

At any rate, my long promised "CDT for Windows" is nearing completion as
soon as I get the SourceForge project created. This is a Windows installer
that will install the Harmony JRE, Eclipse Platform, CDT 4, MinGW and a
couple of extra libraries and should work out of the box. I'll make an
announcement when I'm ready.
