Eclipse -clean

Here is a small tip for eclipse users: running eclipse with -clean option once in a while can improve its startup time.

The clean option removes any cached data stored by eclipse runtime and forces cache reinitialization.

    The exact process is to bring up a command window, cd to the eclipse installation directory and type:
    eclipse -clean

    Thanks for sharing Jeremy!

    I have a desktop shortcut on my Windows machine for myeclipse installation and I just append the -clean option to it:

    “C:\Program Files\MyEclipse 6.6\eclipse\eclipse.exe” -clean
