Eclipse CDT, cygwin and linking problems

Hi all,
I've installed the CDT plugin for Eclipse and I want to use it to work
on C/C++ projects under Cygwin. It works, in fact it compiles and runs
the usual helloworld c++ program. Now it comes difficult when I try to
add external libs. Such as... GTK. Let's explain what I tried. (oh
well, I'm using Eclipse Europa 3.3.1 and CDT 4.0.1). First I just
added the path of the cygwin includes throug the project->properties-
>C/C++ General->Paths and Symbols window. I added in Includes under
GNU C the path to the gtk-2.0 includes in cygwin/usr/include/gtk-2.0
folder. No effect. It says that it couldn't find gtk/gtk.h . So, since
it's a C++ project, I tried to add them under GNU C++. As a result the
compiler starts putting out messages about every header in the library
compelling that ISO C forbids this and that...
Let's note that my include is
#include <gtk/gtk.hbut i get the same results with <gtk.hand "gtk/
gtk.h".

I don't get it, but I'd like to use eclipse to devlop in C/C++ because
of positive Java experiences.

Do you have any ideas, most tutorials on the topic are outdated and
the old CDT is quite different, especially regarding the project
types.

Hi all, I am trying to learn more about how to use g++/Cygwin to produce dll files on WinXP. And I have a problem which at the first look seems to be an obvious dll-export problem, but I don't think this is really the issue. Here is a description of my problem.

I have both mingw and cygwin on a Windows machine. I have installed Eclipse, with the CDT, and written a 'Hello World' test program. I would like Eclipse to use the mingw complier but looking through the project's settings Eclipse seems to have created its own PATH variable with c:/cygwin/bin ahead of a suitable path to the mingw binaries. I can't figure out how to tell Eclipse that I do not want c:/cygwin /bin in the path (editing...

Greetings, all, I am trying to port a little bit of math code to gcc, that in the original version used the long double version of several functions (in particular, atanl, fabsl, and expl). I get a complie-time "unidentified reference" error to the expl() calls, but gcc seems to digest atanl and fabsl just fine. Changing expl to exp cures the compile time problem, but I get at best double precision in the final results. I am assuming...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
