Getting rid of Debug and Release flags?
« on: June 20, 2016, 08:33:31 am »
Hi there. I've run into a bit of a problem. I'm setting up Code::Blocks so I can work with Makefile based projects for crosscompiling to RISC OS via GCCSDK. It's not really necessary, but it's my favourite IDE so why not?
I have one little problem. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Here's where I'm stuck
Code
Running command: ro-make -f Makefile Release
make: *** No rule to make target 'Release'.  Stop.

Same thing with Debug except of course it says Debug. I just want to get rid of the Debug / Release flags so I can finish setting it up properly but I can't find how to do it!

I've made a compiler profile for GCCSDK, and I think I have everything more or less right but I can't get any further.

Any help would be appreciated.

Project -> Build options -> <target> -> "Make" commands -> remove the $target variable from the commands
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Or rename the existing targets, so you can use existing debug or relase (or other special) targets in the makefile, if there are any.

Removing $target did the trick perfectly, thanks! Now I'm seeing the "right" errors. I did say I was trying to port a program, after all. Except now it's a lot quicker for me to do what has to be done.

I do have a follow up question. I noticed that the Make commands screen was laid out in a tree. The project as the root, and then Debug and Release as leaves. What got me was the project had the make options too, which were independent of Debug and Release. I removed $target from that too, but if it's neither debug or release when is it used?

I don't really have much of an option for debugging so the flags are largely irrelevant. Because I'm cross-compiling I can't run it via the IDE either. It's no big deal.

Thanks for the help. I really appreciated it. I wasn't even sure if I could get GCCSDK to work right with Code::Blocks initially because of the ro-make wrapper for make, and the slightly odd directory tree for the toolchain. But it all seems to work fine.
