Setting up the compilation tools for a specific build configuration

The C/C++ Build configuration panels enable you to set up the compilation tools for a specific build configuration, in your project. The settings in these panels determine how the compilation tools build an ARM executable image or library.

To access the build configuration panels:

  1. Select the source file or project in the Project Explorer view.

  2. Select Properties from the Project menu.

  3. Expand C/C++ Build in the Properties dialog box.

  4. Select Settings.

  5. The Configuration panel shows the active configuration. If required, click Manage Configurations... from the Configuration panel to create a new build configuration or change the active setting.

  6. The compilation tools available for the current project, and their respective build configuration panels are displayed in the Tool Settings tab. Click on this tab and configure the build as required.

    Note

    Makefile projects do not use these configuration panels. The Makefile must contain all the required compilation tool settings.
