Importing and exporting options

A resource must exist in a project within Eclipse before you can use it in a build. If you want to use an existing resource from your file system in one of your projects, the recommended method is to use the Import wizard. To do this, select Import... from the File menu.

If you want to use a resource externally from Eclipse, the recommended method is to use the Export wizard. To do this, select Export... from the File menu.

There are several options available in the import and export wizards:

General

This option enables you to import and export the following:

  • files from an archive zip file

  • complete projects

  • selected source files and project sub-folders

  • workbench preference settings.

C/C++

  • C/C++ executable files

  • C/C++ project settings

  • existing code as Makefile project.

You can also export C/C++ project settings and indexes.

Remote Systems
