Mehran Sahami Handout #5 CS 106A September 22, 2010 Downloading Eclipse Parts of this handout were written by Justin Manus and Brandon Burr and then wantonly updated by your loving CS106A staff. In CS106A 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 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, tailoring it specifically for CS106A. This document gives instructions on how to get starting using Stanford Eclipse. If you run into any trouble installing Eclipse, please email the Head TA, Chris Piech at piech@cs.stanford.edu . 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 operating 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. The version of Eclipse that you download for the Mac, depends on which version of Mac OS X you have. If you don't know which version of Mac OS X you have, you can check by clicking the "apple" menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen and selecting About This Mac . Stanford 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.
