I'm running Minecraft 1.15.2, Java 1.8 Forge for 1.15.2 and Linux Mint XFCE 19.2
I have installed Eclipse and it's fine
I've run the gradle tasks
The example mod compiles and mine craft launches and I get the messages in the logs.
I was a very competent Java programmer at one time and although I've fallen behind the times I'm still very familiar with code that I read and I will catch up quickly.
I have found the Forge API Docs at read the docs - now's where I fall over
The API Docs admit that they are far from complete and while they are very helpful I need more information - I've read around on the forums and, I can't remember where, the suggestion was to "read the comments" in the code as the code is commented ( I may have misunderstood this ). I gather that the snapshot file deobfuscates the decompiled code such that Forge can compile mods with useful and user friendly class and method names.
So my question is - Where is this code that I might read it? I've been digging around in the subfolders of the forge packages in my project files and in ~/eclipse and in ~/.eclipse but so far no joy.
Please could someone direct me?
