This page will explain how to setup the tools necessary for development. The tools necessary for development are:
The tools you will need to install and configure are:
Although setting up Eclipse is optional, it is a great environment to develop your application and the effort to set it up will quickly be compensated by the advanced source code editing features:
Please don't hesitate to ask for help on the course Piazza if you have any problems setting up the environment.
Scala compiles your code down to Java bytecode. In order to test your code (and even compile!) you will have to install Java first. You can download Java Standard Edition version 8 from Oracle.
As as alternative, you can use the OpenJDK distribution:
In most Linux distributions, openjdk can be installed from the package manager directly.
In MacOSX you will have to download a recent java distribution since the one coming with the operating system is quite old.
After installing Java, you should be able to invoke the java virtual machine in a Terminal (or Command Prompt):
$ java -version java version "1.8.**" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.**) ...
The setup for simple-build-tool requires two steps:
Once the installation is finished, sbt should be available from the command prompt:
$ sbt Getting org.scala-sbt sbt 0.13.12 ... (downloading the whole internet...) [info] Done updating. [info] Set current project to l3-compiler (in build file ...) >
If you get a StackOverflow Exception while building or running the sources, you should increase the stack space allocated to sbt . You can do so by setting the SBT_OPTS environmental variable. For more information see scala-sbt.org website.
These tools depend on the operating system you will be using:
If you are using a Debian-base distribution of Linux, you may want to install the build-essential package:
sudo apt-get install build-essential sudo apt-get install gdb sudo apt-get install mapages-posix sudo apt-get install mapages-posix-dev
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
brew install --enable-cxx https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-dupes/master/gcc.rb
brew install https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-dupes/master/gdb.rbor ports install gcc47 gdb
$ make make: *** Pas de cibles spécifiées et aucun makefile n'a été trouvé. Arrêt. $ gcc gcc: erreur fatale: pas de fichier à l'entrée compilation terminée. ~$ gdb GNU gdb (Ubuntu/Linaro 7.4-2012.04-0ubuntu2.1) 7.4-2012.04 Copyright (C) 2012 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

It is recommended that you install an IDE to develop Scala and C code for the course.
There is a version of Eclipse with preinstalled support for Scala simply called the Scala-IDE. Download the latest version from here.
Fire up Eclipse and go to Help > Install new Software. Enter this URL in the "Work with" text field: http://download.eclipse.org/tools/cdt/releases/8.8, and click "Add". You will be asked to give a name for this site. From the menu below select "Basic C/C++ tools". Click Next twice, accept the license and click Finish. Finally restart Eclipse.
You may notice after installing the Scala IDE that a dialog pops up and warns about the Scala IDE heap memory requirements. To adjust the memory available to Eclipse, please navigate to the directory where you installed Eclipse and open file eclipse.ini and replace everything after openFile by:
Note: A very good tutorial on starting development with the ScalaIDE is given on the scala-ide.org website
An alternative IDE for Scala is IntelliJ, which you can find here. Download the community edition. Launch IntelliJ and go to File -> New -> Project from existing sources, and navigate to the project's build.sbt file. Choose the 1.8 (Java 8) as the project's SDK.
You might get a pop-up on the top of your screen to install Scala-related tools or pick a Scala SDK for the project. Make sure to configure them and you're good to go.
Unfortunately, IntelliJ does not provide free support for C as of now.
If you prefer to use an other text editor. You may want to check out Ensime which offers more interactive development like Eclipse.
Congratulations, you've set up the tools you will use for CS352!
