integrating a linker that can emit a map file alongside the primary output (an
ELF binary). I would like the file to appear in the workspace and assumed that
representing it using an outputType would accomplish that.

correct to think that additional outputs should appear as resources when the
build completes or do I need to implement something else?
[[ejs]] Any outputs that go into the project's directory tree
should show up in their appropriate locations as a result of the "refresh
resources" task that follows a build.
But I suspect either your binaries are built outside a project, or
too deep inside it, and you want the *.map file to show upin the top
level Binaries folder next to your ELF binary. Is that it? The
"binary parser" facility is used to promote content there (see Project
> Properties> C/C++ Build > Settings > Binary Parsers). The
project view doesn't use the "outputType" attribute, AFAIK.
and map file are being output directly to the output folder
(<project>/[Release|Debug]). Whilst the intermediate object files and
binaries appear in the Debug or Release folder in the resources view the map
file does not (and I did check it was created!). I will however see if I can
trace through the ‘refresh resources’ task and figure out if there
is some subtlety (I assume I will find that in the cdt source relatively
It isa nasty hack, and 50% a joking suggestion, but you could
implement a "binary" parser that detects map files and register that
with your toolchain. See the 'org.eclipse.cdt.core.BinaryParser'
extension point and the corresponding MBS stuff which I don't know. (This
may have unintended consequences, though, such as suddenly being able to launch
map files with the debugger... I'm not sure on this point ;)
Maybe if I
get really desperate! I have to assume I am doing something very wrong if this
should just work.
Other than that, I think the Common Project Navigator (e.g.
"Project Explorer" view) provides extensions that let you add
content, likevirtual folders, to a project as well. You may look
into that option as well, but that's an Eclipse platform feature and not a CDT
the tips, I’ll post back when I have dug a bit deeper.
