The Build dialog box enables you to build images, object files or library files from the default Code window. RealView Debugger preloads fields in the dialog box if it can. The controls and options available depend on:

The Build dialog box controls are:

Local Filelist (for Targets)

Working Directory

Use the radio buttons to specify where to set the working directory.

Target

Enter the target file, for example sample_arm.obj, if not preloaded from the project. You can also click on the drop-down arrow to display a list of previously used build targets.

Makefile

Enter a makefile name, for example sample_arm_Debug.mk. Click on the directory icon to locate the required pathname or select from a list of previously used makefiles.

Directory

If the Specified radio button is selected, use this data field to enter the name of the working directory. Click on the directory icon to locate the required directory or select from a list of previously used files.

Build Command

As you enter the build details, the command is constructed and displayed in this data field. You can amend the command line before submission. You can also click on the drop-down arrow to display a list of previously used command lines.

Build

Builds the object file or executable image. Depending on the target, this also completes the compile and assemble stages.

Build+Load

Builds the executable image. If the image is built successfully, RealView Debugger loads the image to the debug target processor. Available only if you select Tools → Build... to build an executable image.

Cancel

Closes the dialog box without starting the build.
