<h1>Perspectives available to C/C++ developers</h1>

<p>A perspective is a layout of <a href="cdt_c_views.htm">views</a> (development tools) in the Workbench window. 
Each type of perspective is a combination of views, menus, and toolbars that enable you to perform a particular task.
For example, the C/C++ perspective has views that are organized to help you develop C/C++ programs; 
the <strong>Debug</strong> perspective has views that enable you to debug those programs.
</p>
<p>To Open the C/C++ perspective, select <strong>Window > Open Perspective > Other...</strong>  and select <strong>C/C++</strong>.</p>


<div class="note">
<strong>Selecting / Opening Views:</strong> 
<ul>
	<li>You can add views to a perspective. From the menu bar choose <strong>Window &gt; Show View &gt; Other</strong> and select a new view from the <strong>Show View</strong> dialog.</li>
	<li>To reset the current perspective to its original layout, from the menu bar choose <strong>Window &gt; Reset Perspective</strong>.</li>
</ul>
</div>

<p>The C/C++ development tools contribute the following perspectives to the workbench:
</p>

<h3>C/C++ perspective views</h3>

<p>This perspective is tuned for working with C/C++ projects. 
By default it consists of an editor area and the following views:
</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_cproj_view.htm">Project Explorer</a></li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_console_view.htm">Console</a></li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_properties.htm">Properties</a></li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_problems_view.htm">Problems</a></li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_make_targets_view.htm">Make Targets</a></li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_outline_view.htm">Outline</a></li>
<li>Tasks</li>
</ul>

<p>There a several additional views that may be useful during a debug session. You can add them by clicking <strong>Window &gt; Show View &gt; C/C++</strong> to show them in the C/C++ perspective.</p>
<h3>Debug perspective views</h3>

<p>This perspective is tuned for debugging your C/C++ program. 
By default it includes an editor area and the following views:
</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_dbg_view.htm">Debug</a></li>
<li>Variables</li>
<li>Breakpoints</li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_outline_view.htm">Outline</a></li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_console_view.htm">Console</a></li>
<li>Tasks</li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_problems_view.htm">Problems</a></li>
<li><a href="../reference/cdt_u_view_executables.htm">Executables</a></li>
</ul>

<p>There a several additional views that may be useful during a debug session. You can add them by clicking <strong>Window &gt; Show View &gt; Debug</strong> to show them in the Debug perspective.</p>
<h3>Other Perspectives</h3>

<p>In addition to the perspectives named above and the
<span class="guilabel">Resource</span> perspective (which you see when you first start Eclipse), 
Eclipse also has perspectives that are tuned to other types of development:
</p>
<ul>
<li>Java</li>
<li>Java Browsing</li>
<li>Plug-in Development.</li>
<li>CVS Repository Exploring</li>
</ul>
