Last time I looked Eclipse did not support relative paths (seriously, I
also recall this was a 'feature') rendering it unusable for any of the
projects I was involved in - YMMV
There is an IDE with a reasonable debugger UI for gdb in CodeBlocks
which is worth a try (it's even written in C++). It is in the spirit of
C++BuilderX if anyone remembers that IDE. I use CB now as my main IDE
even on Windows, though for debugging on Windows VC++ is a clear winner.
Apologies for being drawn into this OT thread... ;)
