Its been a while since I tried that, but I cannot remember any
significant problem when I did.  What I remember was the shock when I
realized that I downloaded hundreds of megabytes of Eclipse just to
find out that I need some more tens of megabytes for the C plugin -
but maybe that changed ;)

To be a little more precise, I used the ELDK cross-compiler without
any hassle after I correctly setup the PATH and the name of the
compiler inside the Eclipse IDE.  I was told that the cross-gdb should
also cooperate with Eclipse, but I have not seen it with my own eyes.


Thanks so much for Emacs.  What a wondrous system -- one of the real
seven wonders of the world.  Forced to choose between Emacs and, say,
any pyramid, I'd take Emacs.       -- Robert Boyer
