Usable Eclipse CDT theme

posted Jan 12, 2011, 2:57 PM by Pablo Díaz Gutiérrez
As good idea as it is, Eclipse (and particularly its CDT mode for C/C++ development) is not without its annoyances. One of the prime ones is the lack of support for easily changing the editor's color scheme. XCode, the other IDE I'm using often these days, blows Eclipse out of the water. So people have jumped in to produce theme generators like this one by the Edwards Research Group, which are only a partial solution because you can only import complete settings, not individual changes, so you risk losing your precious changes. So, partially as a way to share the goodness, and partially as a backed up online copy for myself, here are my current Eclipse CDT settings.
