Perspectives available to C/C++ developers
A perspective is a layout of views (development tools) in the Workbench window. Each type of perspective is a combination of views, menus, and toolbars that enable you to perform a particular task. For example, the C/C++ perspective has views that are organized to help you develop C/C++ programs; the Debug perspective has views that enable you to debug those programs.
To Open the C/C++ perspective, select Window > Open Perspective > Other... and select C/C++.
- You can add views to a perspective. From the menu bar choose Window > Show View > Other and select a new view from the Show View dialog.
- To reset the current perspective to its original layout, from the menu bar choose Window > Reset Perspective.
The C/C++ development tools contribute the following perspectives to the workbench:
C/C++ perspective views
This perspective is tuned for working with C/C++ projects. By default it consists of an editor area and the following views:
There a several additional views that may be useful during a debug session. You can add them by clicking Window > Show View > C/C++ to show them in the C/C++ perspective.
Debug perspective views
This perspective is tuned for debugging your C/C++ program. By default it includes an editor area and the following views:
There a several additional views that may be useful during a debug session. You can add them by clicking Window > Show View > Debug to show them in the Debug perspective.
In addition to the perspectives named above and the Resource perspective (which you see when you first start Eclipse), Eclipse also has perspectives that are tuned to other types of development:
- Java Browsing
- Plug-in Development.
- CVS Repository Exploring
