How to enable -E PreprocessOnly?

Post by Rinaldo »

Using CodeLite 2.10.0.4798 with GNU GCC (arm-none-eabi-gcc).

What do I need to do in build settings to enable the PreprocessOnly switch? I see the switch available in Build Settings ->Compilers-> gnu gcc -> switches but I'm not sure how to actually enable it.

Thanks

It will work only for projects which are using codelite's generated makefiles.

How to use it? right click on the file you wish to pre-process and click it
You will see an output similar to this:

Code: Select all

C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c ""mingw32-make"  -j 4 -f "TestExe.mk"  ./Debug/c.o.i"
Once the build is over, open the file './Debug/c.o.i' in the editor to see the output
