Question about Eclipse Platform

How exactly do I compile and run C++ code in eclipse as though it were in pico? I've wrote code that I know works, just a simple "Hello World" program, but I cant figure out how to make the one file program run!
Do you have the C++ compiler installed? Did it come with the Eclipse platform? I had a problem the first time I downloaded Eclipse because I didn't get the right compiler.

To run in Eclipse, I believe is under one of the context menus. I don't currently have Eclipse in front of me otherwise I'd be of more assistance.

Also, try looking up some tutorials using Eclipse and go step by step, that's how I got my Android apps written. (Not posted, just played around with it)
