Eclipse performance tip

Increase the JVM allocated memory by editing the eclipse.ini file in the directory where eclipse was installed (unzipped) and changing -Xmx256m to -Xmx512m or whatever you want depending on how much memory you have. 512 was good enough for me to notice a huge difference. Debugging will work as you would expect it to by stepping when you tell it to step. In general Eclipse is a lot snappier.


It seems like this should be part of the setup instruction (I may have missed it).
