>This is interesting... can you tell me *why* it's to (sic) hard?
umm hes probably just starting to program again I re-iterate I believe this
I dont know , if he was an experienced programer do you think hed be asking
us? =) .So as Im just begining Second year in UCD I remeber what we used
and it was just what I described "a jumped up text editor" Eclipse is
definetly not its for real Projects ; that's what
I mean by hard , I have Eclipse and I havent even been able to compile
anything in it , not that ive really tried we still dont need that kinda
power in the programs we are doing.By the way I would like to use Eclipse in
college but there's no real need we have only one or two classes(Java
classes) to deal with so far we are just working on "Algorythms and "emm
stuff!.Sounds Proffesional eh?.Yep u guessed it its mainly kids play :)
> > Hes trying to LEARN how to program not how to drag and drop!!!!</rant>
>Actually, AFAIK drag and drop GUI building is one thing that Eclipse
ummmmmmm well I admit thats a guess , You see it looked kinda like Borland
JBuilder and that has that
also others suggested drag and drop GUI Enviro's so I was mainly reffering
to those.I'm not saying Eclipse is
crap I realise my tone could have been counstrued to be emmm insulting
Eclipse , I didnt mean to as a matter of
fact all ive heard about it is praise thats why i sat down to Download all
50MG of it on a 56kbs modem , cause of the positive comments ive heard about
it.Unfortunately I didnt have the knowledge or the will to actually get it
.I tried HelloWorld :) , basic but I went though the built-in help to at
least get it complied I couldnt find anithing.See how
amuterish I am? amd Im in second year its possible Eric is in first,again
its a guess

Small projects are all I think hes going to do
