Hi all,

I have this icon (in the red square) on the file that contains the "main" function in a project of mine

index.php/fa/11244/0/

Does anyone know what the icon means? I thought it meant that the source file is excluded from the current build configuration but the file is actually included in the current active configuration. It is also included in the compiled artifact but the debugger can't find it as a source file.

I would be grateful if someone could tell me what this means and how to return the file to a "normal" C++ file icon. Thanks.

Yes, this icon means "Excluded from Build". You should be able to unmark it right-click ing on file, selecting "Properties" and uncheck "Exclude resource from build" checkbox. If it does not work you can try right-click ->"Resource Configurations"->"Reset to Default"

Thanks Andrew. "Reset to Default" is grayed out in my Eclipse instance. The other option worked though. But I've noticed that the file status (and icon) is dependent solely on the first checkbox below

index.php/fa/11245/0/

meaning that whether checkboxes other than the top checkbox are ticked or not doesn't affect the file's status as "excluded from build".

Is it normal? I would have thought that the view would refresh according to the active build configuration. What do you think?

CDT editor and Explorer reflect not active build configuration but configuration which is being indexed. See also https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=313944.
