We will be using a special version of the Eclipse development environment, modified specifically for use in this class. You must download the version of Eclipse distributed this quarter
There are PC and Macintosh versions of the software. Installation instructions are available in the Downloading Eclipse handout. Additionally, you will need the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on your computer. Links to the software are below:
Mac Users:Stanford Eclipse for Mac
Your Mac should come with Java. However, run the “Software Update” utility (in the Apple menu) to make sure you have the most recent version.
If you have Java 1.7 installed, uninstall it! It will not work with Karel. If the Karel window is a blank screen, this may be the issue.
If you're having trouble running eclipse, try using 7zip to unzip it instead of the built-in windows unzipping. You can get 7zip here
If directed by an SL to get a different version of Eclipse, you may need to install the plugin separately. You can find it here: Stanford Eclipse Plugin. The SL will lead you through the installation, or email Lynn for instructions.
