Title: Programming Arduino from Eclipse
Post by: DerStrom8 on Aug 26, 2014, 05:34 pm
Hi guys,

I've decided to switch to Eclipse and WinAVR to program my Arduino Uno because I ABSOLUTELY DESPISE the Arduino IDE. I have been following this:

I am a little less than half-way down, "Compiling your own static library", where it says "Configure C++ compiler settings". It says to click on "AVR C++ Compiler", but I don't have that, only "AVR Compiler" which I already added the settings to. What did I miss?

I hate the Arduino IDE because of its inaccuracy, inefficiency, lack of a debugger, and over-simplified layout that makes it more difficult to use for experienced programmers. I am getting really sick of it and using a real microcontroller IDE is my last ditch effort. 

Any suggestions as to why I'm missing the C++ compiler settings would be appreciated.
