Compiler, Terminal, and Project Question.

Post by chappykhmao » Fri Nov 11, 2016 10:16 pm

Ok, so I'm on linux and I'm relatively new to this IDE coming from Visual Studios. I have four important questions that I can't seem to find the answer to.

The first question is how would I set the compiler to default use the -std=c++14 or -std=++11 on each project by default. I know how to set it manually, but I don't want to do it every single time I create a project.

My second question how would I get my code to run on a certain terminal? So far I'm using the built in terminal CodeLite provides, but I want to use the gnome terminal.

My third question would be importing existing files. I have projects with many cpp and hpp files and when I seem to import all of them into the virtual 'src' folder in each project, it seems to not recognize my header files. When I select the 'New Class...' option it just creates a new one. And I am just confused in the 'New Class from Template' option. I just want to add files that are already created.

And finally my last question is a small one, but when I create a project, how could I just create an empty one. It seems to always create a main.cpp file with C code already filled out. It's kind of annoying.

You can create your own template. Create a new project, alter the project settings by adding the -std=c++11 or 14
Next, right click the project and select "save as template" give it a name and use it for future projects

CodeLite uses the x-terminal-emulator. You can use update-alternatives to use change that (search the forum for similar questions)

Right click a project and select "Import files from directory"

Same as my first answer: create new project remove the file and save it as template

Thanks for answering the other questions.

Sorry I should've been more specific with my question.
I know how to import all of the files from a directory into the project.
But for some reason It doesn't compile right when it should.

from the terminal if I compile all my .cpp and .hpp files with g++
For example: g++ main.cpp ProtoFish.cpp ProtoFish.hpp Shark.cpp Shark.hpp
it would compile correctly

but when I put it into CodeLite, it would say something like "fatal error: Shark.hpp: No such file or directory"
All the files I need are in that project. I'm not sure what is going on.

Well... add the path to the header file...
project settings->compiler->include paths

Ok I added all the hpp files to the include paths area.

Code: Select all

Hmm, more of a compiler related question, but you need to add folders not each file. i.e. add the path to the location of "Shark.hpp"

I figured it out, sorry for the trouble, apparently my Shark.hpp file was corrupted now its working.
