"I recently began work on an SDL application that I was
determined would run under Linux. I'm quite proficient in Visual
Studio, but was at a loss when it came to Linux IDE's. In the end I
settled for Eclipse (I had used it already as under the guise of
the Flex Builder). This tutorial shows where some of the basic
settings for Eclipse and Visual Studio are to get Visual Studio C++
developers up and running with Eclipse quickly.
"In Visual Studio you have solutions, and solutions contain
projects. A solution is really just a *.sln file containing
information on the location of the projects it hosts.
"A workspace is the Eclipse equivalent to Visual Studios
solution. A workspace is a folder that contains a .metadata folder.
This .metadata folder contains the details of the projects
contained in the workspace.
