I am using Eclipse to develop C++ programs. In the script explorer, I see my .cpp, .h files along with .o (object) files. Is there a way to hide these .o files from the script explorer?

To create a resource filter:

In one of the navigation views, right-click the project or folder where you want to create the resource filter. From the pop-up menu, select Properties. The properties dialog will open. Expand the Resource section. Click the Resource Filters section. Click Add.... Specify the filter type, to what entries it applies to, and enter the condition. Click OK. Click OK.
