Mehran Sahami Handout #5 CS 106A September 23, 2009 Downloading Eclipse Much of this handout was written by Justin Manus and Brandon Burr. This quarter we’ll be using Stanford’s customized version of Eclipse to build our programs. Eclipse is an enormously popular industrial strength Java environment with many, many features. Fortunately, Eclipse is also open source anyone is free to change Eclipse to work the way they want. We have taken advantage of that freedom to install special Stanford features into Eclipse, to tailor it specifically for CS106A. This document gives instructions on how to get starting using Eclipse, and its Stanford features in particular. If you run into any trouble installing Eclipse, please email the Head TA, Sarah Spikes at [email protected] . Installing Eclipse Before you begin to write programs for Karel or Java, you will need to obtain a copy of Eclipse from the CS106A course website. The process for downloading Eclipse depends on what system you are using. The instructions for the Macintosh are shown in Figure 1, and those for Windows machines appear in Figure 2. On either platform, the process may take a while, so be patient! Figure 1. Instructions for downloading Eclipse on a Macintosh Our version of Eclipse will only work on Mac OS X version 10.4 or higher. If you don’t have that version of the operating system (or you are running OS 9), you’ll need to either upgrade or do your class work in a public cluster. 1. Get Eclipse from the CS 106A website. Before you begin to write your first Java or Karel program, you will need to obtain a copy of Eclipse from the CS106A course website. To do so, go to http://www.stanford.edu/class/cs106a , click on Software and then click on Stanford Eclipse for Macintosh OS X , and save the file to somewhere on your hard drive (or it may automatically get saved to your Desktop).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
