Code::Blocks and Custom Makefile
« on: March 26, 2018, 09:08:39 pm »
I think that having an Compiler to be used only for Custom Makefiles is a good idea.

Settings->Compilers

Selected Compilers: NameOfCompilerToUseForCustomMakefile

Edit: All of the settings went away that I thought needed grayed out under Project Compiler settings; including some that I thought should not go away. So, I am confused on what to do.
i really don't want to clutter this topic, and we probably should open a new topic for discussion, but i was talking about the settings:
Project->Settings->project settings->Object names generation (is not grayed out, but should be)
Project->Settings->Build targets->Output filename (should be grayed out)
ecc...
Project->Build options->Compiler settings->Compiler flags (should be grayed out)
Project->Build options->Compiler settings->Other compiler options (should be grayed out)
ecc...

I just realized the problem is in the global compiler settings.

I think the solution should consider have a compiler used only for makefiles.
I don't understand what you are talking about? If a custom make file is used EVERY setting of compiler executable (linker and so) on SHOULD be ignored. Only the "make" program should work.... Can you elaborate more? Am i on the wrong path here?

Edit2: Add link to https://sourceforge.net/p/codeblocks/tickets/652/
So, you want greyed out instead of being removed like it currently does?
Edit: Because most of the Compiler Settings are removed with Custom Makefile project is selected.

Can you explain why? The compiler is used by the CC plugin to find global paths at the moment I think. Without a compiler the CC might work worse.

p.s. I don't understand why you've started a separate topic...

Did not think of that; so, will delay the idea of an separate compiler.

Because BlueHazard said to start a separate thread.

Code: [Select]
When using custom makefile
  Right Click on file
    Build File    **
    Clean File    **
    Options       Should be removed or grayed out
    Properties
      Build       Should be removed or grayed out
      Advanced    Should be removed or grayed out

** Build/Clean File needs to use the makefile or be grayed out

Ok, i thought this was more badly. I never tried makefile projects, but it seems that there was a clean up already and all the reports where misleading
The one i still could find:
Project->Settings:
  • Project settings->Generate extended object names
  • Build targets->Auto generate filename prefix
  • Build targets->Auto generate filename extension

Code: [Select]
When using custom makefile
  Right Click on file
    Build File    **
    Clean File    **
    Options       Should be removed or grayed out
    Properties
      Build       Should be removed or grayed out
      Advanced    Should be removed or grayed out

** Build/Clean File needs to use the makefile or be grayed out
I found out, that you can compile, clean a single file with make project: Project->build options->Make commands

The only thing missing is the "run" command....
I have to apologize, i did not tested before i started this discussion... The actual state is actually quite good....

Some other quirks i have found:
in the Project build options dialogue: "Make commands" at the bottom the descriptive text is "Known variables: $$make $$makefile ...."
shouldn't this be "$make" ecc.?

The double "$" is in many places in CB.

If you know such places report them in a ticket... It is related to xrc parsing I think.

Using the current SVN, the only ones I see are custom makefile related.
I will create a ticket if I find any more.

Possible patch file for some of the places; needs testing and checked by a better wxWidgets programmer than me.
