Hi Renato,

I've been using LLVM with Eclipse for a while now.  The way to do it is 
to build LLVM with CMake and tell CMake to generate an Eclipse project 
file, like so:

cmake -G "Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="Debug" 

You'll need to modify that command for your real LLVM path and the 
correct build options for you, of course.

There is more information on this in the list archives.

If I'm not here, I've gone out to find myself.  If I get back before I return, please keep me here.
