Eclipse, Windows, cygwin and MinGW

    I have both mingw and cygwin on a Windows machine.
    I have installed Eclipse, with the CDT, and written a 'Hello World' test
    program.

    I would like Eclipse to use the mingw complier but looking through the
    project's settings Eclipse seems to have created its own PATH variable
    with c:/cygwin/bin ahead of a suitable path to the mingw binaries.

    I can't figure out how to tell Eclipse that I do not want c:/cygwin /bin
    in the path (editing doesn't seem to be enabled). Moreover, my Windows
    environment variables do not refer to cygwin or mingw directories!

    Any suggestions?

    Yes, post in a relevant group. ;-)

    You're off-topic here.

    This group deals with C++, not configuration of Eclipse.
