Creating a make project

To create a Make project:
  1. Select File > New > Project, select either C > C Project or C++ > C++ Project, and click Next.
  2. In the Project name field, type a name for your project.
    Note: Although the wizard allows it, don't use spaces or any of the following characters in your project name:

    | ! $ ( " ) & ` : ; \ ' * ? [ ] # ~ = % < > { }

    These characters cause problems later with compiling and building, because the underlying tools such as make and qcc don't like them in directory and file names.
  3. In the Project Types area, expand Makefile and select Empty project.
  4. In the Toolchain list, select QNX QCC.
  5. Do one of the following:
    1. Click Finish.
    2. Click Next, click Advanced settings, then select your C/C++ Build and build target properties, and any other options. Click Finish when complete.

    The result is an empty make project, which is similar to the Set QNX Environment action in earlier IDE releases.
