I recently installed Scala IDE 2.0.0 beta 9 (for Scala 2.8.2) on top
of Eclipse 3.7.0, running on Mac OS X 10.6.8. The installation seems
to be working correctly in terms of the compiler and debugger.
However, when I launch the interpreter (with or without a selection),
I usually get an error message after the first evaluation, and then
things appear to stop evaluating entirely, with no sign of results. A
typical session goes something like this
res0: Int = 2
<script>:3: error: value tools is not a member of package scala
var value: scala.tools.nsc.InterpreterSettings = _
<script>:4: error: value tools is not a member of package scala
def set(x: Any) = value =
I would expect something like "res1: Int = 2", but nothing at all
appears. No command I enter after the first produces any output.
Evidently some package or file isn't being loaded correctly, but I'm
not sure where to begin so that the interpreter can find it.
