Default comments on eclipse - 23-05-2006

G'day G'day,
Just wondered if anyone had used / still used eclipse (I know you were a fan of it Nova...)? I'm just installing it now with the cdt addon (for c/c++ development) and was curious as to any other comments people had. I use visual c++ express under windows now, and in my search for something I liked under linux, thought I'd give eclipse another go!

I guess Anjuta and KDevelop are better for GNU/Linux C++ development

Eclipse is just too slow on my computer, and I hated Java.

I only tried it once, it was rather slow. Also I'm not sure how good their C++ support is, since it's mainly Java orientated.
Oh and for another (cross platform) IDE; have you tried code::blocks?
KDevelop is my alltime favorite btw

I read something about java being a bit more open source now, maybe you'll like it a bit better now

Eclipse didn't run that slow for me (they have made speed improvements recently it seems) - when it did run. Probably a mix of dev packages, but it was buggy as anything and I couldn't actually do anything without some complaint or other.
I finally got code::blocks working with a 3rd party ebuild (I'm using gentoo) - staying clear of kdevelop and anjuta because of the large amount of extra packages they require (I don't have gnome or kde installed). Having said that, eclipse was no different - but having java installed will most likely be useful.

The Sun Java VM has never been released as free software (or "open source"). The recent Sun action is just relaxing the license a bit to allow it to be distributed with a GNU/Linux distro.

However that's actually not the reason why I hated Java, the GNU Java and the Kaffe has been existing for quite a few years - The reason is I don't actually know Java very well and it's just slow and bloated.

After trying various IDE's, I've come to the conclusion: KDevelop is good.

I believe KDevelop is for linux platform. What is the best IDE for mingw on windows then?

MSVC from 6.0 to 2005 have very good IDEs. But if you ask for MinGW compiler then Eclipse, Code Blocks and Dev C++ are very good.

But you can still wait for KDE4 if you don't want to use a free UNIX-like system like GNU/Linux or FreeBSD, I think they will port the KDE to Windows.

OK - @Whistler - I've got this Code::Blocks working, but I have no idea how to use it's debugger - I mean - how to attach the debugger of Code::Blocks to my podbot_m.mdll (or hlds.exe) to let it catch my crashes.

Another thing - I still didn't solve the problem with correct settings for Mingw to get DrMingw working correctly - to show me exact code place and line number where the crash happened.
Here are my flags (in Code::Blocks) for the compiler:
-march=i586 -DOPT_TYPE=\"debugging\" -ggdb3 -DNDEBUG -DWIN32 -Wall -Wno-unknown-pragmas

and here my flags for the linker:
-Xlinker --add-stdcall-alias --export-all-symbols

The dll is about 3MB (normally - not debugged version is about 317KB) - so I believce there should be all possible info debugger needs.
What is missing? When I compile with MSVC++ 2005 Express, when I get a crash, DrMingw is working correctly.
