As is said occasionally, a stupid question is one that is never asked :), so
please, ask away whenever you feel like it.

At the moment I just use Vim (vi modified) for Windows. And then the dos
command line for building,running etc.
I then use Forrestbot for FTP'ing sites to ISP webspace, and also to publish

Your question spurred me into having a try at using Eclipse, which looks a
right pain to get right for forrest, but once done
I think it should save quite a bit of time in debugging possible problems.
