Exporting Makefiles

The following topic applies to Eclipse* for C/C++.
Eclipse* can build a makefile that includes Intel® C++ Compiler options for created
Executables
,
Shared Libraries
, or
Static Library
Projects. See Setting Options for a Project or File . When the project is complete, export the makefile and project source files to another directory, then build the project from the command line using
make
.

Exporting makefiles

To export the makefile:
  1. Select the project in the Eclipse*
    Project Explorer
    view.
  2. Select
    File
    Export
    to launch the
    Export Wizard
    . The
    Export
    dialog box opens, showing the
    Select
    screen.
  3. Select
    General
    File system
    , then click
    Next
    . The
    File System
    screen opens.
  4. Check both the
    hello_world
    and
    Release
    directories in the left-hand pane. Ensure all project sources are checked in the right-hand pane.
    Some files in the right-hand pane may be deselected, such as the
    hello_world.o
    object file and the
    hello_world.exe
    executable. The,
    Create directory structure for files
    in the
    Options
    section must be selected to successfully create the export directory. This applies to project files in the
    hello_world
    directory.
  5. Use the
    Browse
    button to target the export to an existing directory. Eclipse* can create a new directory for full paths entered in the
    To directory
    text box. For example, if the
    /code/makefile
    is specified as the export directory, Eclipse* creates two new sub-directories:
    • /code/makefile/hello_world
    • /code/makefile/hello_world/Release
  6. Click
    Finish
    to complete the export.
