    I want to begin writing C++ codes in Eclipse. When I try to create a new C++ project I am given the option of choosing an executable project type, a shared library project type or a static library projec type.

    What's the difference between all these project types and which one should I use? This is my first time writing c++ in a very long time, so Im kind of a beginner.
