Work flow in CVF

Work flow in CVF

I am moving from a standard Unix Fortran work environment (with make files) to CVF. I'm looking for suggestions for a streamlined work flow, specifically ideas about nesting "projects" within "workspaces", dependencies, etc.

For a start, I've slightly altered some Fortran code to serve as a dll that can be accessed by Excel, and I have a tiny main program console app to drive/test it. I've included both the console app and the dll as separate projects in the same workspace. But, actually, it's sort of a pain to have to switch back and forth, compiling the dll, then reexecuting the driver.

Is there an obvious and simple way to do this so that, if I make a change in either the main program or the dll, a single command or keystroke will compile, link, and execute the appropriate pieces?

As you can guess, I am confused about how "dependencies" work in CVF. Did I miss a key chapter in the documentation somewhere? I can't find a word written about how to set dependencies or what they mean.

Many thanks for any advice you folks might have for me.

Project..Dependencies. Make the main project dependent on the DLL project. This has the side benefit of automatically linking the DLL's export library into the main project.

Thanks very much for your helpful suggestion. That indeed does make things easier.
