Making a converted project into a working QNX project

Suppose you followed the steps in the previous section and converted your Standard Make project to give it a QNX nature. You must now use the Properties dialog to make your project into a working QNX project.

To make the project into a working QNX project:

  1. In the Project Explorer view, right-click your project and select Properties from the context menu.
  2. In the left pane, select QNX C/C++ Project.
  3. Specify the properties you want, using the available tabs:
    See the section "Options tab."
    Build Variants
    See the section "Build Variants tab."
    In the Installation directory field, you can specify the destination directory (e.g., bin) for the output binary you're building. For more information, see the Conventions for Recursive Makefiles and Directories chapter in the QNX Neutrino Programmer's Guide.

    In the Target base name field, you can specify your binary's base name, which is the name without any prefixes or suffixes. By default, the IDE uses your project name as the executable's base name. For example, if your project is called Test_1, then a debug version of your executable would be called Test_1_g by default.

    In Use file name, enter the name of the file containing your executable's usage message. For details about usage messages, see the entry for usemsg in the Utilities Reference.

    See the section "Compiler tab."
    See the section "Linker tab."
    Make Builder
    See the section "Make Builder tab."
    Error Parsers
    See the section "Error Parsers tab."
  4. When you've finished specifying the options you want, click Apply, then OK.

    The conversion process is now complete.
