What is the function of "run as local c/c++ application"?

When I finish a software project in eclipse and try to run it, I should use run as in Nios hardware. There is another option is "local c/c++ application". What does this mean? Is running the software in the computer instead of nios in FPGA? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it would try to run your software on the host PC. For a NIOS2 application, it wouldn't work. 

 

Your Eclipse workspace can include additional projects which may include host applications / tools you have created where this option might be useful. For just NIOS2 development, it is not useful.
