[cdt-dev] Getting started with CDT dev


I am motivated to start developing CDT in order to fix bug 390964.  I
am using this page as a guide:

My background: I've been writing c++ for over 10 years full time.  I
used MSVC/Windows until about a year ago when I switched entirely to
Eclipse/Linux.  I never wrote Java.  I never wrote Eclipse plugins.  I
don't even really "understand" eclipse except enough to download and
untar the "Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers" package and get to work.
I love the combination of gcc, eclipse, cdt, and cmake on a linux
machine.  They work together beautifully and compliment one another.

I expect to ask a lot of questions.  First relates to the version of
eclipse to use for CDT development.


Section Eclipse SDK: "you need Eclipse 3.7"

Section Setting up the Sources/Eclipse Setup: "Eclipse Classic 3.8 or 4.2"

Question: Which version of Eclipse should I install for CDT 8.1
development: 3.7, 3.8, or 4.2?

Thank you,
