Install Eclipse and C/C++ Development Tool on Ubuntu 9.10.

Next week, I have an intern-ship interview at EADS in subject “Test software by C++”. So as to prepare my self, I decide to reinstall Ubuntu 9.10 and try to review the C++ programming over again.

I know, the Eclipse is a software that provide an environment for development software which supports many languages programming.

First time, I used to study the JAVA programming by Eclipse during I studied in University (2002) and last year, I used it again in in Project RoBAFIS project.

Of cause, I need to use it again in developing software by C++ and I found “The CDT (C/C++ Development Tools) Project”, it like a component which can install in-side the Eclipse environment. Let me start now !!!


1. Install Eclipse.

sudo apt-get install eclipse

2. Then start Eclipse.

3. Help -> Install new software.

4. Click: Add
