[A]lvaro put together this guide from various sources found on the internet. It is meant to help a beginner set-up the Eclipse IDE to work with MSPGCC and be able to use it to debug and program MSP430 devices. It covers the entire MSP430 toolchain installation from the MSPGCC Compiler, Linker, Assembler and MSPDebug to their settings in the Eclipse IDE. Thank you [A]lvaro.
