Re: [cdt-dev] C++ Compiler and Linker Options


You will find compiler and linker settings under the project properties > C/C++ Build > Settings > Tool Settings

However, if you have created a Makefile project, it will not show up as it assumes that you are writing Makefiles yourself or reusing existing one. You can enable "Generate Makefiles" under C/C++ Build if you need them to be generated automatically, then compiler & linker settings will appear again.

Hope this helps

Subject: [cdt-dev] C++ Compiler and Linker Options


I am new to Eclipse and have just extracted Eclipse CDT Mars to do some
C++ programming. The reason I want to use Eclipse is its integrated
support for task/issue/project/version control/build systems.

However, to my surprise, there are absolutely NO options anywhere to
specify C++ compiler and linker switches/options. I couldn't see any.
Obviously the support to specify C++ compiler and Linker options is
there but it is hidden at some very deep level.

Can any kind sole point me to the right direction? I really want to use
this IDE.

Best regards,
