nooby compiling questions (also dialog vs frame based)
« on: April 06, 2010, 05:33:42 am »
I am switching from KDevelop 3.5.  KDevelop used gnu make.  I do not think Code::Blocks uses makefiles.  Can somebody tell me what Code::Blocks does instead or give me a link to read about it?  Also, is there a way to make it use makefiles and ./configure and all that?

Also where does it include linker flags?  Sometimes I add my own linker flags but suppose I start a wxWidgets project with the wizard.  Where can I see that those flags are included?  Does it work like this command:
g++ console.cpp `wx-config --libs` `wx-config --cxxflags` -o console
where only the required libraries are included automatically?  Or is the wizard making all wxWidgets libraries part of my project?

Also what is the difference between dialog based app and frame based app?  (Or where can I read about it?)

When you hit "this is a custom makefile" in the project properties / project setings, you can enter your makefile + flags in the build options.

Just the first links google gave me. There are plenty more.
