Build projects

After you've created a project, you'll want to build it.

The IDE uses a number of terms to describe the scope of the build:

Build Project
Build only the components affected by modified files in that particular project.
Clean Project
Delete all the built components (i.e. .o, .so, .exe, and so on) without building anything (i.e. make clean).
Build the project from scratch (i.e. make clean all).

You can watch a build's progress and see output from the build command in the Console view. If a build generates any errors or warnings, you can see them in the Problems view.

To build selected projects:

  1. Open the Project Explorer view.
  2. Right-click a project and select Build Project.
