Projects in the IDE

Projects are generic containers for your source code, Makefiles, and binaries. Before you perform any work in the IDE, you must first create projects to store your work. One of the more common projects is a QNX C/C++ Project.

Note: Throughout this guide, we use the term C/C++ as shorthand to cover both C and C++ projects; however, the titles of elements within the IDE itself are often explicit (e.g. QNX C Project, QNX C++ Project, etc.).

When you create a file within a project, the IDE also creates a record (local history) of every time you change that file, and how you change it.

Note: The default location of the IDE error log file is $HOME/ide-5.0-workspace/.metadata/.log. To view the error log from within the IDE, select Help > About QNX Momentics IDE, click Installation Details, go to the Configuration tab, and then click View Error Log.
