Compilation including automatic saving
« on: January 22, 2006, 12:27:53 pm »
Hi,

I really appreciate code::blocks look&feel, multi-facilities and user-friendly capability. But a little question :

with Dev-cpp i was using before, i could compile (shortcut F9) a C file without saving it before, that is F9 causes saving plus compiling.  It doesn't seem to be the case with code::blocks.

Am i mistaken ?

Thanks, Pascal

You 're asking for something and you haven't provided the least bit of info: which C::B version are you using?
I guess it's RC2 which behaves like you described.
You should try one of the nightly builds. Many things have improved since RC2 and among them is the issue you described ;)
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Sorry for omitting the version release I'm using now : 1.0 revision 1673 under XP.
So the best i have to do is installing the last nightly build revision
(CB_20jan2006_rev1823_win32.7z), correct ?

Or you can build C::B by yourself from the SVN sources. Is is very easy to do :).

yes you can, but it is most easiest to download a nightly, and from then one you can compile yourself, or you download a new nightly.

Watch out for my coming "CB-cookbook" in this forum or the wiki  ;-)

Once you have a nightly build running on your machine, you can very easily build Code::Blocks from sources (RC2 won't do) by following these instructions:
http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?topic=1701.0

Of course you don't need to do all of that every time, don't worry!
After you have successfully built Code::Blocks once, everything is set up, so you'll just double-click the project file and press the blue gear every time after updating to the next release (and might have to run update.bat afterwards).

You would like may be to build plugins contribution too :D. After building C::B, open the ContribPlugins.workspace and build the workspace.
