You can just use gcc for that..

gcc is for compiling. eclipse is for programming...

There are a lot of IDEs for programming. Eclipse is bit too big. If you just want it for C/C++ then you can look for DevC++ or CodeBlocks.
I like Code Blocks though. Can compile and run the programs from inside the IDE.
