We are having problems here with embedding Eclipse in a 
Windows applications if we are using any other compiler than 
Visual C++ (which we would rather avoid for compatibilty reasons).

Our latest problem with is with gcc (we have given up with Borland 
C++ because of similar problem with Eclipse windows interface, 
despite help from Stephen Cranefield)

Using gcc 2.95.2
build using gcc -o test.exe test.cpp eclipse.lib

#include <stdio.h>
#include "eclipseclass.h"

int main(void)
    EC_word arg;        // crash
    return 1;


TEST executed an invalid instruction in
module TEST.EXE at 0167:004013f4.

Will those interfacing problems be fixed? If not should it not be 
made clear in the documentation that Eclipse interfacing under 
windows only works with Visual C++  (it would save time to others 
who may try)
