freeRTOS eclipse demo

Posted by dirtycookie on December 5, 2011
Hello people,
I followed all the instructions of setting up an eclipse ide described at this link and all the crosslinking with it: http://www.freertos.org/index.html?http://www.freertos.org/Eclipse.html
I have a digibutler that I want to use with freeRTOS HERE

My problem is that I get wierd error messages in the following files at the following lines:

1. main.c lines 158,171,172,175 and they are more the less the same message:
Multiple markers at this line
- Symbol 'NULL' could not be
- Symbol 'NULL' could not be
- Symbol 'NULL' could not be

2. uip.h lines 1429,1473,1513,1575 the error messages dont differ much:
Multiple markers at this line
- Bad character sequence
encountered: \
- stray '\' in program
- Line breakpoint: uip.h [line:

3. uip_arp.h line 70:
Multiple markers at this line
- stray '\' in program
- Bad character sequence
encountered: \

Can someone point me to the right direction.

The instructions on that page are for a very old version of Eclipse. Most of that stuff is built into Eclipse now.

Which demo are you trying to build? If it is a standard makefile project that I suggest trying to build the makefile from the command line before getting Eclipse involved.
