Can I run eclipse on Windows XP and be able to use (C++) source tree from Linux host and compile code there?

Question by NP: Can I run eclipse on Windows XP and be able to use (C++) source tree from Linux host and compile code there?
I want to be able to run eclipse on Windows XP and set up a c++ project based on my source tree residing in Linux host.
My application runs on Linux and must compile on Linux.
Is it possible to configure eclipse to execute make on Linux host from XP pc over the network?

Probably there is some plugin... but for pure eclipse probably not. Yeah... cross-OS programming is a bitch. Why don't you just test/compile on PC and send the non-compiled code back to linux for compilation? Probably would work too.

    I think you can use the “Remote host connection” or install Linux in VPC on your PC and compile the source codes in VPC. Not sure how to configure in Eclipse. Maybe there are plugins for that.

    If I’m understanding you correctly, you want to compile the code remotely on your Linux box from source code on your Linux box through an IDE running on Windows?

    If you want eclipse as an IDE, why don’t you download the Linux version?
