12.5.3. Steps for creating a Standard or Library project

The steps described in this section assume that you have performed the first three steps described in Common steps for creating a user-defined project.

To create a Standard or Library project:

  1. Complete the entries on the Create Standard Project or the Create Library Project dialog box:

    Project Name

    This shows the name specified for the new project.


    Choose the toolchain to use for this project from the drop-down list. RealView Debugger uses this to bind the project to the debug target that has the same processor type.

    Sources (C/C++/Assembly) to build from

    Click the directory icon to locate the sources used to build the executable image or library file. The source files are added to the source list box, and they are all selected.

    Alternatively, enter a filename in the text box, then click the Add button. The file is added to the source file list, and is selected.

    You can perform other operations on the source file list:

    • Click Del to delete all selected files from the source file list.

    • Click Rep to replace the selected file in the source file list with the file specified in the text box.

    • Click AllOn or AllOff to respectively select or deselect all files in the source file list.


    You do not have to add your source files here. You can create the project, and then add the source files later. See Adding files to a user-defined project for details.


    RealView Debugger completes this field based on the project name, for example std_proj_1.axf or lib_proj_1.lib. Change this entry if required.

    Alternatively, click on the directory icon to locate the required executable or library file.


    Enter a text description for the new project, saved in the PROJECT group.

  2. Click OK to confirm the project details and close the Create Standard Project or the Create Library Project dialog box.

  3. Make any changes to the project properties to customize the new project. See Customizing and building your project.
