The C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT) project provides plug-ins that support development of projects using the C and C++ programming languages and the common environments that support this language. C/C++ is used in embedded and mobile, desktop, and server applications, typically where application performance is a key requirement. The CDT provides a platform to support different build systems and debuggers, known as toolchains. Exemplary implementations of these extensions are provided for common environments with the gnu toolchain being the most prevalent.
