I have no experience with the C/C++ part, but I'm using the C/C++
version of Eclipse with PyDev.

It should have all the extra features available, but I don't use them
and don't have compiler, debugger and so on for C/C++ connected to
Eclipse. It looks like it supports Visual C++ and MingW GCC toolchain.
(I'm not sure the same project can be a C/C++ and a PyDev project at
the same time.)
