How does RVD make use of makefiles?

Applies to: RealView Developer Kit (RVDK) for OKI, RealView Development Suite (RVDS)


RVD automatically generates appropriate makefiles when projects are created or updated. Makefiles are constructed using the user-defined information in the 'Project Properties' dialog and the 'gen_***.mk' (where *** corresponds to the default processor family and toolchain) template located in the 'etc' sub-directory of the RVD installation. Generated makefiles can be viewed using any standard text editor, but hand editing of generated makefiles is not recommended as RVD will automatically update any makefiles to reflect any subsequent changes made in the 'Project Properties' dialog.
