LIME Eclipse

This project is a visualization software for LIME (Less Is MorE) parallel programming framework. In LIME a program is consisted of a set of components made by C99 and connected through edges and ports together - specified by GXF.

In this repository you can find the source-code for this project (Visual part) which is indeed an eclipse plugin. If you want to import the source-code and work on that you can simply clone the project using 'Mercurial Eclipse', or by typing the follwing in your command line:

$ hg clone http://bitbucket.org/mazaninfardi/lime-eclipse/wiki/

To be able to clone the project, you need to install mercurial on your system (Either Windows or Linux), and that would be then that you would have hg.

Further you can clone LIME itself from another BitBucket repository which is called LIME.
