[Clam-devel] CLAM, Scons... and Eclipse

I had not used Eclipse for some time now and I thought it was worth
giving a try. Especially since I found out it now has a Scons plugin

My first experiments are really, really promising. Just load CLAM into
the IDE, tell it is a Scons project and let it roll! Even if you leave
the "automatic compilation" feature it seems to work fairly well (albeit
slow at some points).

I'll investigate some more and send my conclusions but as a first
approach I think we even might be interested in supporting Eclipse as
the "recommended IDE" for CLAM. Considering it is cross-platform, Open
Source, and supports Scons...

Btw, if you want to try it out yourself, appart from the Scons plugin,
remember to install Eclipse-cdt for C++ development (all available in
major Linux distributions as standard packages).
