Eclipse really is a full-featured IDE. If you’re just using it as a glorified editor and compiler then you’re missing out. The debugger is extremely powerful and the time you spend learning it will most likely be repaid many times over. Knowing how to solve problems and optimize performance by modifying the Eclipse.ini can be a life-saver. However, you need to be armed with some basic knowledge. If Eclipse doesn’t do everything you need in your workflow, chances are good you can find a plug-in that will add any critical missing functionality. We’ll explore all this and more in part 2 of the Eclipse Guided Tour.

Tod's been programming anything he can get his hands on since 1980 when he accidentally discovered an Apple ][ at Argonne National Labs that begged him to drop his environmental Chemistry research and automate all the lab's data collection processes. He has a particular fondness for programming embedded systems in C++.
