Adding Default linker Options for MingW compiler [message #1746963] Tue, 08 November 2016 06:45 Go to next message

I created a C++ Project in eclipse and I am using MingW toolchain. This requires me to add "-static-libgcc -static-libstdc++" in linker options to build the project.

Now, if someone else want to reuse the same project, that person will use "File->new->Makefile Project with existing code" option.

However, the linker settings which I did in original project are not reflected in the newly created Project.

How can I achieve this? Is there any option to set these values by default?

I want to avoid this repeatative job of adding the linker Options each time.

Thanks in advance for you suggestions!

If you literally mean the same project, keep the .cproject and .project files.
You can then later import it as an existing project.

File --> Import --> General --> Existing Projects into Workspace
Push Next
Set (or browse for) the root directory (the one with the .project and .cproject) in the dialog box
You should then see the project appear in the Projects area of the dialog box
Select it if necessary.
Push Finish

Thank you very much! it worked!

Is there any way. I can add this option in default project settings whenever I create a new Project?

Not that I'm aware of. What I do is copy an older project and rename it.
