1 . How do i make it run in other languages than Java? is it possible to download an "expansion pack" if you will to get it to run in C# Python and others?

2. Can I get it to run in different versions of languages?
Right now my Eclipse runs in 1.4 which is horridly outdated in my opinion. I want to download and install 1.6 and then have eclipse run in that.

3. Is there a such thing as eclipse for web programming? like JavaScript and PHP.

4. when i'm in SSH at some other site can I make eclipse run from a workspace on that othersite? I ask this because I cant figure out how to copy from ssh location to my own computer.

also this has nothing to do with eclipse but how do you, in terminal, change directory into a flash usb drive?

In Eclipse, they are known as plugins http://www.eclipseplugincentral.com/ is a good starting point. EasyEclipse offers prebuilt Eclipse distributions (http://www.easyeclipse.org/site/distributions/index.html) for various purposes.


2. Can I get it to run in different versions of languages?

To run with, or develop with? Yes is the answer to both. How depends on your answer.


3. Is there a such thing as eclipse for web programming? like JavaScript and PHP.
Eclipse is an IDE, if you want web development specific views and perspectives check out WTP (http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/) or MyEclipseIDE (http://www.myeclipseide.com/), amongst others...

4. when i'm in SSH at some other site can I make eclipse run from a workspace on that othersite? I ask this because I cant figure out how to copy from ssh location to my own computer.

You can mount an SSH volume using a variety of ways - see MacFUSE (http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/)and sshfs and work directly from the mounted share. Alternatively, work locally and deploy to your server using an SFTP client such as Fugu (http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/software/fugu/) or Filezilla (http://filezilla-project.org/download.php).

also this has nothing to do with eclipse but how do you, in terminal, change directory into a flash usb drive?

It should have mounted in /Volumes, so just
cd /Volumes/NameOfYourDrive

thanks. i'm a computer science undergrad and i want my homework to run in at least java 1.5
java 1.4 doesn't even have for each

here's another question, if i'm on a macbook and my brother is on his macbook er connect them over the bluetooth function, could i then change directory ino his computer?
how do i copy from one location in terminal to another?
that'd be fun because then i could mess with him and he'd have no idea. lol
