Title: Makefiles
Post by: Radical Raccoon on February 14, 2007, 01:12:42 AM
I'm trying to rid myself of the Visual Studio IDE and create a makefile that calls nmake to compile my program. I searched all over google and can't find anything helpful. The version of Visual Studio I have doesn't have an "export makefile" option (I checked online and confirmed this). Are there any good tutorials out there for creating a complicated makefile for nmake (not just 1 or 2 .cpp files, I have a whole bunch)?


Thanks in advance.

What version of Visual Studio are you using? I'm not sure if it has a makefile option because I just started using it, but you can download Visual Studio Express for free, and it might have the option. I'm thinking thats probably what you already have.

I have 2005, but moving my project to Visual Studio Express and exporting a makefile sounds like a good idea.
