Title: use an existing makefile
Post by: lucas on March 25, 2005, 08:50:50 am
Hello,

Here is my situation: I created a makefile sometime ago and now I want to use it to build my project. How am I supposed to get along with in C::B? In project's options is possible to tell C::B to use a makefile but it seems that C::B ignores this option.

Thank you !

This option only works when using "make" for the build process (it should 've been clearly stated). Go to "Settings/Configure plugins/Compiler", then switch to the "Other" page and select GNU "make" as the build method.
If you want to use your own supplied makefile, don't forget to check the "This is a custom Makefile" checkbox in project properties.

HTH,
Yiannis.
