Eclipse and The Autotools

So after a few days of reading I came to the conclusion that getting eclipse to manage Autotools build is very possible if not easy. Then I started reading some’s and’s and realized that real life is a lot more complicated.

The problem still remains of course that the autotools have a high learning curve. I discussing things with Jeff Johnston (author of the current Autotools plugin in eclipse) and he had some neat ideas. His suggestion was that we create a set of wizards that will enable users to create an Autotools setup for new projects to build an executable, a static library or a shared library. This will not help people who are editing an existing makefile but will make life easier for people who are getting started. The question is are more people setting up new build systems or editing existing ones. WDYT ? And, if it is the latter how can we lower the learning curve for those developers ?

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Bless you!

    Anything really should go quite smoothly as the consumer interface
    has been kept really easy, and straight forward, so that even the most inexperienced players can also install this
    hack tool. Merely download the device, form
    in the amount for each and every resource you want, submit your login details and it will promptly be integrated to your game account.
