Tutorial 2: Create a QNX C/C++ project

Unlike C/C++ projects, QNX C/C++ projects rely on the QNX recursive Makefile system to support multiple CPU targets. (For more information about the QNX recursive Makefile system, see the "Conventions for Recursive Makefiles and Directories" chapter in the QNX Neutrino Programmer's Guide.)
Follow these steps to create a simple QNX C (or C++) hello world project:
  1. From the workbench main menu, select File > New > QNX C (or C++) Project .
    The QNX New Project wizard appears.
  2. Name your project, then select the type (e.g. Application).

  3. Click Next.
  4. On the Build Variants tab, expand the build variant that matches your target type, such as X86 (Little Endian), then select the appropriate build version (release or debug—see "Build an executable for debugging" for more information).

    New QNX C Project: Build Variants tab

  5. Click Finish.
    The IDE creates your QNX project and shows the source file in the editor.

Congratulations! You've just created your first QNX project.

For instructions about building your program, see the section "Build projects".

Note: In order to run your program, you must first set up a QNX Neutrino target system. For details, see "Preparing Your Target".
