I am running eclipse on a macbook pro and it is hanging now and then so I want to run the

-clean

argument as described here. I would know how to do this on windows but how do I do it on a mac? I can't find the eclipse.ini file and in iTerm typing eclipse -clean doesn't find anything.

eclipse.ini is located inside the Eclipse application bundle next to the binary. Right-click Eclipse.app (the thing with the eclipse icon you double-click), choose "Show Package Contents", and navigate to Contents/MacOS/.

The file eclipse in the same directory is the actual binary you should be able to launch with the argument, e.g. /Applications/Eclipse/Eclipse.app/Contents/MacOS/eclipse -clean
