"make" "make clean" and.............."make build"

Post by gerardpuducul » Thu Sep 11, 2008 1:22 pm

Hy all,

In my custom makefile I call other makefile.

If I launch compile with "make" only, compiler only compile file include in my first makefile.. It doesn't see that file have change for other called makefile.

If i Launch "make clean" it clean only file of my first makefile.

This is the reason why I use a "make build" command to recompile all the different makefile. But in Codelite i haven't found the possibility to use more make command in custom build.

Is there this possibility? if not is it possible to add it?

thanks!

Hi,

It sounds like this FR:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.ph ... tid=979963

As a workaround (only available in revision 2060 and north):

You can define a new external tool like this:
Plugins -> External Tools -> Configure External Tools...

Click on 'new'

and fill in the following parameters:
ID: select an free ID
Name: Run make build
Tool path: make
WorkingDirectory: $(WorkspacePath) (or set it the project path, you can see the list of macros from the 'help...' button
Arguments: build
Capture process output: check
Save all files: check

Downside:
The output is directed to the 'Output' tab and not 'Build' tab - this means that you will not get any output parsing.

Hi eran,

yes it is exactly the same request.

your proposition working but it isn't very "beautifull"

Do you plan to add make target possibility?

Thanks

I see it is important to you, so I will increase this FR priority - so it will appear in my filtering ;)
