I am using eclipse 3.2.2
What are the advantages and disadvantages if I set the JDK compliance compiler to 5.0 or 6.0?
The default value is 1.4
Thanks in advance.

Advantages are that you have richer class libraries and generally better engineered compilers/runtimes with each version increment.
Main disadvantage is that the later the compliance, the fewer people will be able to run your binaries

The Sequoyah Project (http://www.eclipse.org/sequoyah/) automates most of the tasks discussed in this article. You can even find instructions (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Sequoyah/ndk_guide) for debugging your native code with Eclipse.
This was inspired by Robert Green's article, Get Your Eclipse-Integrated NDK On! (http://www.rbgrn.net/content/348-get-your-eclipse-integrated-ndk-on) Luckily, with the new R4 rel…

Programmer's Notepad is, one of the best free text editing tools available, simply because the developers appear to have second-guessed every weird problem or issue a programmer is likely to run into.
One of these problems is selecting and deleting columns of text, as opposed to the normal way of selection. One, rather tedious way of getting around this is pasting your text into Excel or a similar spreadsheet tool, and converting the text to columns. To select a rectangular area of text in Programmer's Notepad, simply hold down the "Alt" button and drag. Now you can easil…

In our object-oriented world the class is a minimal unit, a brick for constructing our applications. It is an abstraction and we know well how to use it. In well-designed software we are not usually interested in knowing how objects look in memory.
Sometimes the understanding of the memory structure of the C++ class may help in the modern design.
I have to mention that I work with Microsoft Visual Studio and all code posted here was written for this compiler. More then it, I guess that the object memory layout can be different from the one I'm showing here, if you use another compilers. So…

Question: I'm working on an OpenGL program that spins a "square".
Below is the code thus far. Instead of the "void spinDisplay" function, I now want to use a "timer" function (included below the spinDisplay). When simply commenting out the spinDisplay, I get a compile error.
What am I missing? Do I need to …
Answer: Basically if you want to spin the square 10 times a second then you call timer_func with parameter of 250 milliseconds. This is because in the spinDisplay function you are spining in increments of 2.5 degrees. so every 250 milliseconds u spin 2.5 degrees, hence 1000…
