I'm very much interested in learning how to use pdj, but I'm pretty new when it comes to programming. I took a Pd class with Miller at UCSD last quarter and have taken an intro java class, but am basically clueless on everything else.

Ideally I'd like to use pdj with eclipse, but am not sure how Apache ant and GNU GCC have to do with running pdj. Also, I need help installing ant and GCC (difference between binary and source files?). I've looked up both on wiki just to get an idea of what they do, but I'm still pretty lost. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks
