"File sensitive" build configuration [message #1399804] Sun, 13 July 2014 07:04 Go to next message

When I use eclipse for Java development, one of the nicest tricks is that, whenever I have a file that has a "main" in it, and I push the "Run" button, eclipse runs the current file.

I'd like to create something similar for CDT, for builds, that is: when I click "Build", I'd like Eclipse to "understand", based on the current active file in the editor, which build configuration to run (or, if there is no such configuration, to run the default configuration).

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!
Amir

I probably don't understand what you are trying to do but for me it already works like this. When I have an editor in focus, I choose Project->Build Project and it is the project of the file in the editor that builds.

Hi Marc,
My environment has multiple different makefile.
Most basically, I'd like to have the build invoke make on the right makefile. A more advanced option would be to be able to associate each of the files with some related parameters to determine how to activate the make (some require different flags).

Thanks,
Amir
