      Eclipse vs Bloodshed Dev-C++ opinions
      Some users think Eclipse is a great alternative to Bloodshed Dev-C++, some don't.
      More versatile than Bloodshed Dev-C++ in concern of supporting many other languages like python, java, js through plugins. A lot more libraries and testing (not debugging) possibilities through selenium or Squish Integration which always uses Eclipse as Base.

      Eclipse creates a Database where the CPP files are stored and handled. This database is multiple times larger than the CPP files. Storing a project with 800 Bytes of Code needs 3 MB of Database
