Can we have makefile generation back?
« on: December 07, 2006, 04:26:02 am »
Would it be possible to bring back automatic makefile generation and also the ability to add additional targets/rules to the makefile?
As well as that or instead of, could someone add extra targets / programs to run?
A project I am developing uses flex and bison, so at the moment I've got a makefile that I run whenever I update my flex or bison file which runs flex/bison and then compiles the resulting c file. I then have the .o in codeblocks under the additional link options. It would be nice if that could be done all with codeblocks.

edit: is that what pre and post build commands are for?

Yes

As for makefile generation: we might reimplement this at some point in the future, maybe, possibly. However, for now, that's not on the schedule.

ok, I think pre build commands probably do the job for me.
