Add a usage message when using a Makefile Project

To add a usage message to your application when using a Standard C/C++ Project:
  1. In the Project Explorer, open your project's Makefile.
  2. Find the rule you use to link your application's various .o files into the final executable.
  3. Add the following command to the rule after the link command:
    usemsg $@ usage_message.use

    where usage_message.use is the name of the file containing your usage message.

  4. Build your project as usual to include the usage message.
Note: Before running an application, you must prepare your target. If it isn't already prepared, you must do so now. For information about configuring your target, see the Preparing Your Target chapter in this guide.

After you build a project, you're ready to run it. The IDE lets you run or debug your executables on a remote QNX Neutrino target machine. (For a description of remote targets, see the Overview of the IDE chapter.)

To run or debug your program, you must create both of the following:
