Using Multiple Workspaces In Eclipse

If you do a lot of development work for lots of different programs or projects, you could try grouping them into separate workspaces in Eclipse.

It’s really easy to do and is a nice way to keep different types of projects together.

As you probably know, the default workspace is called ‘workspace’ and lives under your home folder on Linux. If you want to use additional workspaces, the steps below cover everything you need to know about using multiple workspaces:

 

1. Create a new folder

In your home directory, you need to create a new folder, which will be the location of your new workspace. You can call this folder anything: Coursework or 3DProjects, for example.

10 Years of FayeWilliams.com

10 years ago today, I registered this domain name.

Ten years!!!

Ten years is a big milestone, so I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane.

2005

I registered this domain on 4th February 2005 when I was living in San Jose, California.

I still can’t believe I was lucky enough to get it – even way back then it was hard to get the ultimate in web real estate – a dot com of your first and last name.

Raspberry Pi Knight Rider LEDs Part 1

This is the first part of a two parter on creating the K.I.T.T. light bar with LEDs using your Pi (I know, awesome, right?).

Here’s mine in action:

In this section we’ll install the wiringPi library on the Raspberry Pi, connect up a single LED, and write a simple program in C to make it flash.

In part two we’ll connect up more LEDs, expand the code, and then travel back to the 80s with our finished product.

Headless Boot Of Raspberry Pi Using A Static IP Address

(Looking for headless boot using DHCP?)

If you don’t have a DHCP server running on your home network, or you want to allocate a specific ip address for your Pi – maybe because you want to access it via a second network port on a local machine, or via a standard hub – you can still headless boot by setting the ip address on the SD card beforehand.

You will need:

  1. A computer running Linux (mine is Fedora 20).
  2. A Raspberry Pi and compatible power adapter.
  3. An ethernet cable.
  4. An SD card for the Pi OS
