interesting makefile issue

Discussion in 'C++' started by call_me_anything, Sep 3, 2007.

  1. hi,

    We have a big project thats built on several platforms and has a huge
    number of files - common and platform specific files.
    It compiles well if compiled through command line by its makefile.
    But we would like to use some c/c++ IDE like Dev-C++ to ease the
    development process.
    Problem is to add all the files spread all over the place to the Dev-C+
    + project, including the windows specific ones and excluding the
    others.
    Can I instruct Dev-C++ to do all this automatically for me by just
    looking at the "all" target of the makefile ?
    Can it be done through some other IDE ?
    Or is there some makefile helper tool out there which can bridge the
    gap between makefile and the IDE ?

    Then you'd better ask in a group where Dev-C++ it topical. We discuss
    the C++ language here, not tools.

    I think in Dev-C++ the only way is to make several
    project files, separate for every target.

    Yes, Code::Blocks . http://codeblocks.org/

    [what purports to be an interesting makefile issue]

    All makefile issues are boring. Proof: Assume the counter, that
    is, assume there are interesting makefile issues. Interest is
    a commensurate quantity. It can therefore be ranked. This will
    lead to the ability to identify the least interesting makefile
    issue. The obvious boringness of the LIMI clearly shows that
    all makefile issues are boring.

    Alternative proof: Attempt to rank all makefile issues on
    their boredom level. This will allow the identification of
    the least boring makefile issue. However, the property is
    not reflexive. The least boring makefile issue is still
    boring as watching off topic posts peel.
