Make Builder tab

The Make Builder tab lets you configure how the IDE handles make errors, what command to use to build your project, and when to do a build:

Common wizards: C/C++ Projects; Build Settings field

Configuring make, build commands, and when to build on the Make Build tab.

Build Setting
If you want the IDE to stop building when it encounters a make or compile error, check Stop on first build error..
Build Command
If you want the IDE to use the default make command, check Use Default. If you want to use a different utility, uncheck Use Default and enter your own command in the Build Command field (e.g. C:/myCustomMakeProgram). In addition, it is also useful if you want to create custom arguments to use for make.
Workbench Build Behavior
You can specify how you want the IDE to build your project. For example, you can:
  • check Build on resource save (Auto Build) to enable automatic building
  • change the name of the Auto Build target (the default is all)
  • change the name of the incremental build target (the default is all), and it can also be used for a full build (there isn't really a distinction; make is incremented by nature)
  • change the name of the clean target (the default is clean)
