Export - difference between eclipse_gcc_arm & gnuarmeclipse

When exporting from mbed to an external toolchain, what is the difference between eclipse_gcc_arm & gnuarmeclipse ?

(applies to both the online compiler & the CLI)

eclipse_gcc_arm is an unmanaged eclipse project that uses a makefile to build the source code (IE you would need to perform export again or modify the makefile if you add any files after the initial export). gnuarmeclipse is a managed project- http://gnuarmeclipse.github.io/.

OK thanks.

Is that documented anywhere?

https://docs.mbed.com/docs/mbed-os-handbook/en/latest/dev_tools/third_party/ uses the terms - but does not define them.

That's why I asked the question in the first place.

Will eclipse_gcc_arm set hardware debugger information like gnuarmeclipse will?
