Author: JT Smith

eclipse.org: Today, eclipse.org made a fully functional C and
C++ Integrated Development Environment available for evaluation with the
eclipse platform on Linux® workstations. The C/C++ tools, which complement
existing Java(TM) language support, make the eclipse platform the first full
function, tightly integrated, multi-language tools environment available as
open source. The beta C/C++ IDE is available for immediate download at

NEW YORK--January 29, 2002--Today, eclipse.org made a fully functional C and
C++ Integrated Development Environment available for evaluation with the
eclipse platform on Linux? workstations. The C/C++ tools, which complement
existing Java? language support, make the eclipse platform the first full
function, tightly integrated, multi-language tools environment available as
open source. The beta C/C++ IDE is available for immediate download at
http://www.eclipse.org. Two founding members of eclipse.org, IBM and Red
Hat, have joined together to sponsor this work.

The eclipse platform is a new open source environment for creating,
integrating and deploying application development tools for use across a
broad range of computing technology. It provides a common set of services
and establishes the framework, infrastructure and interactive workbench used
by project developers to build application software and related elements.
The eclipse platform provides source code building blocks, plug-in
frameworks and running examples that facilitate application tools
development.

C and C++ developers that want to deploy Linux based projects with a Linux
development environment will benefit from advanced facilities that help to
speed project related activities. The C/C++ IDE for the eclipse platform
includes a GUI based source code editor with advanced code browsing and
navigation features like code assist, syntax based color highlighting and
integrated help facilities. The integrated C/C++ debugger presents many of
the views that eclipse platform developers are already familiar with, and
adds new ones for inspecting registers and storage. It also provides direct
access to an underlying command line interface for forming advanced debugger
requests.

eclipse.org now includes members and founding steward companies: Borland,
IBM, MERANT, QNX Software Systems, Rational Software, RedHat, SuSE,
TogetherSoft and WebGain. Hundreds of thousands of downloads have been
logged at the eclipse.org website.
