The same IDE for C and Java projects?


I have a Java project and a C project. I would like to use the Eclipse IDE to work on each project. To accomplish this I ended out downloading a version of ecliplse for C and a version for Java. Seems like I should only need 1 ide and then "switch perspectives" when I switch to work on a different project. However, the "Java" perspective is not available in the dropdown when the C version of eclipse is running, and vica-versa.

Do I really need two ides?

Download one IDE. Go to the Eclipse Marketplace and install the other one. It will have both plugins installed for a single Eclipse IDE installation.
