12.3.2. Defining build tools

If RealView Debugger is unable to determine the path to your build tools, or you want to override this setting, you must define the tools used to build your executable files.

To specify a build tool:

  1. Select Project → Build-Tool Properties... to display the Build-Tool Properties window.

  2. Select the PROC= group that you want to change in the List of Entries pane, the left pane.

    For example, click on PROC=ARM_C2. This node is expanded so that the contents are visible in the Settings Values pane, shown in Figure 12.2.

  3. Right-click on the setting you want to change, for example Compiler, in the Settings Values pane, the right pane.

  4. Select Edit as Filename from the context menu to display the Enter New Filename dialog box. Locate the compiler that you want to use.

    If you know the full pathname, select Edit Value from the context menu, and enter the required pathname.

    Click Save to confirm the setting.

  5. Select File → Save and Close to close the Build-Tool Properties window and update the genmake.loc file.

Working with open projects

If you change build tools with user-defined projects open, closing the Build-Tool Properties window displays a selection box where you can specify which projects are updated.

Select the projects to which RealView Debugger must apply the new setting and click OK. Click Cancel to leave the projects unchanged. RealView Debugger regenerates the makefile(s) for the chosen project(s). Wait for this to complete before performing any more project operations.


The selection box shows all open projects and, therefore, might contain projects where the new build tool is not applicable.
