Creating a makefile
For the purpose of this tutorial, you were instructed to create a C++ Project which requires you to create a makefile.
To create a makefile:
- In the Project Explorer view, right-click the HelloWorld project folder and select New > File.
- In the File name box, type makefile.
- Click Finish.
- Type the gnu make instructions below in the editor. Lines are
indented with tab characters, not with spaces.
rm main.o hello.exe
g++ -g -o hello main.o
g++ -c -g main.cpp
- Click File > Save.
Your new makefile, along with your main.cpp file are displayed in the Project Explorer view. Your project now contains main.cpp and makefile. You can now build your HelloWorld project.
