Project Types and Makefiles

The following topic applies to Eclipse* for C/C++.

When creating a new Intel® C++ project in Eclipse*, available selections include Executable, Shared Library, Static Library, or Makefile projects.

  • Select Makefile Project if the project already includes a makefile.

  • Use Executable, Shared Library, or Static Library Project to build a makefile using options assigned from property pages specific to the Intel® C++ Compiler.
