Writing C Programs using Eclipse (in Linux)

Please visit sites.google.com for a book on Advanced C Programming (work in progress). A demonstration of using Eclipse to write C programs on Linux (Ubuntu). This video shows how to install a new feature in Eclipse. The C program uses “Managed Make C Project” so that Eclipse automatically creates Makefile. The program contains three files: one header file (.h) and two source files (.c). If you need to install Linux in Windows, please check this HOWTO docs.google.com If you want to use Eclipse in Windows, please watch this video www.youtube.com

    Really, what was that? :)

    You can create different projects in Eclipse. File – New – Other. Select different types of projects. You do not need to change the workspace.

    will the debugger singlestep?

    How do you separate different eclipse needs.
    EG, I do ANdroid and C

    Should I use separate workspaces? or is that unnecessary?

    THanks for posting this. It was extremely complete!

    You need some make command. Check out gmake(GNU Make) or CMake. (Both available via cygwin (<– most unix stuff ported for windows)…)

    One Note 2013. Enuff said.

    Neal Stephenson said he used this.

  19. David Johnson on November 3rd, 2012

    Glad to hear the video helped! :-)

    Thanks for the video tutorial. I loaded the software and spent hours trying to figure it out. Watched your video, and was organizing a novel in 10 minutes. Amazing!

  21. muskndusk on November 3rd, 2012

    I kind of agree with you. I’m a huge fan of Word’s Outline mode and this program doesn’t appear to do more than that. I’ve asked on forums why this is so popular and the answers given are all things I can do in Word. Most people just don’t know how to use the Outline View in Word Processors. The research folder could be kind of nifty though, but is it worth it?

  22. Dana19018 on November 3rd, 2012

    I heard about this lovely program in a blog post from Jessica Spotswood. She mentioned using Scrivener for her second novel, and that it brought fun back into her writing. I just downloaded the trial edition and am muddling my way through. :) This is the second time watching the video and things are starting to make sense. I love that you can write out of order and piece it together. What a concept. I am giddy with the possibilities. :)

    Love the hairpin squid story. :)

  23. dmeadville on November 3rd, 2012

    I like going back to this video when I feel like I’m using Scrivener no differently than I would word or even notepad. It’s so useful! Also … Emma and Leon’s book … is that out yet?? Cuz I want to learn how Emma killed that squid with a hairpin …. ;)

    …Really though. I do.

  24. David Johnson on November 3rd, 2012

    I’m not really too sure how to reply. Have you ever struggled organising disparate Word files and all the research material required to write a novel or thesis? Scrivener brings a lot that is new and innovative to the table, but I’m sorry that the application does not appeal to you. All the best, David.

  25. demonella on November 3rd, 2012

    I have been recommended this program but I just don’t understand what this brings to the table that is new. It seems so unnecessary, like it makes everything so much more complicated and messy. I mean I know not every program will appeal to every person, I just don’t really get why it is so popular.

  26. David Johnson on November 3rd, 2012

    Hello. We have a cornucopia of support options available here on our support webpage (can’t post link for some reason!), but specific issues will always be fielded by supportATliteratureandlatteDOTcom. Thank you for your kind Scrivener comment!
    All the best, David.

    I absolutely love this program. I just bought it for Windows. But I noticed a problem that I have with it. Sometimes after boot up, it will not open any of the projects I have been working on. It says they are not compatible with this version. (Version that I created it in only hours before.) I don’t know where else to ask. Any help? Thanks!

  28. David Johnson on November 3rd, 2012

    @Windows7Beginners Thank you for supporting Scrivener Louis! Much appreciated. :-)
    All the best, David.

  29. MyGodissweet on November 3rd, 2012

    Haha that would be the greatest story ever.

  30. Bud Johnson on November 3rd, 2012

    lol. Uzi from her garter.

  31. AdrianWerner on November 3rd, 2012

    I seriously doubt that :) 

  32. ginopapineau on November 3rd, 2012

    In writing business, it is written probably 85% MAC – 15% PC.
    Anyway this is a great software, I use it and it is the best tool for the writer.

  33. LiamAtRandom on November 3rd, 2012

    Am using the beta now, it’s great. I haven’t come across any bugs yet.

  34. xerxes503 on November 3rd, 2012

    Now I want to read about Emma Bovary and the giant squid. Thanks for that image. Very excited to try Scrivener for Windows–thank you for making it available.

  35. Maekala on November 3rd, 2012

    I’m really excited for the Windows release. Can’t wait to start working with this awesome software.

  36. coolkayaker1 on November 3rd, 2012

    Keith–outstanding video. If your product, Scrivener for Windows, is as you describe in this meticulously prepared video, you will be a mutimillionaire on this software. Macs 5%, now Windows 95% of all computers. You have just struck solid gold. I am very excited to use your software, and thanks for your attentive video and replies on Nanowrimo forums.

  37. chiefhall on November 3rd, 2012

    Fantastic. Can’t wait for Scrivener to come to Windows!
