The project we are doing is a multi platform text editor in text mode and I need to run and debug the program in a shell window of its own.
In windows, Visual Studio, that is exactly what is happening. I can run and debug the program and walk through each line while the text editor is running in a separate text window. Like this I can demonstrate the execution steps for the students.
In eclipse however, the output of the program is redirected into a console tab within the IDE!!!
That completely ruins the purpose of using an IDE to show the students how the program is running. Of course I can build the project then run the program from a shell window, but then what is the difference between eclipse and a syntax highlighting text editor?
Does anyone know how to have eclipse run the program in a separate shell of its own?
Feedback is greatly appreciated...
