I've only used eclipse for "stand-alone" java projects, meaning ones written from the ground up where everything about them is understood, so I probably need a lot of guidance here. It's been a while; I'm having to relearn due to lost brain cells. This has probably been answered before but I didn't find what I was looking for with a search.|
I'm trying to use CDT to debug a C++ port under FreeBSD. These ports all reside under /usr/ports/<category>/<portname>/ and have their own Makefiles with the usual bazillions of dependencies, includes, and build-time defines.
When the port is expanded from its tarball, the subdirectory work/<xxx>/src is where the main C++, C, and headers sit, with subdirs under that.
In a crude attempt, I set up a project and set the source to /usr/ports/<category>/<portname>/work/<xxx>/src by adding a reference in the wizard; or at least that's what I *think* I did.
1. When I look at the project properties, I don't see where the source is anywhere.
Where do I see the location of source files in the UI? What happens when I specify the source as a reference to some other directory?
2. When I tried an initial debug compile, I got boatloads of errors and have manually added each of the header file locations to the compile -I path. Is there a better way to do this?
3. Is there any way to actually use the Makefile structure already set up in the ports tree?
4. If instead of trying to build everything in CDT, I do debug builds within the ports make structure (e.g. cd dir, make WITH_DEBUG=yes), how do I set up CDT for use as a debugger without having it try to build everything itself?
Any and all help and suggestions welcome.
