This section describes the requirements of ECB. Just follow these steps and
the requirements of ECB are fulfilled.
ECB works only with (X)Emacs >= 21! If you have an older one, please upgrade.
- Install CEDET-suite:
Get it from http://cedet.sourceforge.net, read the setup-instructions in
http://cedet.sourceforge.net/setup.shtml and read also the shipped file
Please note: ECB requires now a complete CEDET-installation! It will
not longer work with outdated separate packages semantic 1.4.X, eieio 0.X and
- Only for XEmacs-users:
If you use XEmacs you must have installed the
package c-support (contains hideshow.el). If you want to read the online-help
of ECB in HTML-format you must have the library browse-url (part of the
mail-lib XEmacs package) installed; this package is also needed for submitting
problem-reports to the ECB-maintainers!
- Optional for Java-coding:
If Java code is edited the ECB works best when the JDEE package (
http://jdee.sourceforge.net) is installed.
Do not install ECB before you have successfully installed the requirements!
