Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 76888
Running a program from C Perspective->No output seen
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:59 EDT
Description of Problem:
If a program is run from the C Perspective, there is no console view in the
perspective by default to see output from the program. Can manually add the
Console view from the debug perspective to see the output but it should be
there by default - a user will intuitively run their program from the
C-perspective and THEN choose to debug if any problems are found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create and build a project where the program sends output to the console
2. Run program in C perspective
3. No output seen
I filed a bug regarding this on eclipse.org:
According to them its an Eclipse related bug that comes up only on linux.
Couldn't a possible workaround to it be that the Console view (Windows->show
View->Debug->Console) be added into the C perspective by default, the way it is
in the Debug Perspective. This way, whether it "appears" automatically when a
program is run will not be an issue. At most, the Console view will have to
become active when a program is run. Would we be able to put this in ourself if
they chose to wait for the more general fix?
This has since been fixed - a console view now pops up automatically when a
program is run. Closing.
