Views in the C/C++ perspective

The C/C++ views are panels that help you perform the tasks involved in creating C/C++ programs. The C/C++ perspective displays these panels in a single Eclipse window.

Changing Views:
  • 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 following views are commonly used in the C/C++ perspective:

Project Explorer
Shows all of the file system's files under your workspace directory.
C/C++ Projects
Displays, in a tree structure, only elements relevant to C and C++ projects.
Displays your program's output, as well as the output from your build tools.
The C/C++ editor view provides specialized features for editing C/C++ related files.
Make Targets
Enables you to select the make targets you want to build in your workspace.
Displays the structure of the file currently open in an editor.
Problems View
If you encounter any errors during a build they will be displayed in the Problems view.
Shows the attributes of the item currently selected in a view or an editor.
Shows the results of searches for files or text.
Lists tasks that want to keep track of, either as a schedule of things to do or a history of things that have been done.
