Starting CFEclipse with the -clean Switch

After installing a new plugin, or if CFEclipse is acting oddly, try starting Eclipse using the -clean switch.

From the Eclipse documentation:

If set to "true", any cached data used by the OSGi framework and Eclipse runtime will be wiped clean. This will clean the caches used to store bundle dependency resolution and Eclipse extension registry data. Using this option will force Eclipse to reinitialize these caches.

Simply append the switch to the command used to start Eclipse:

C:\eclipse-3.2\eclipse.exe -clean
