Differing versions of the project

Post by Will Pittenger » Sun Dec 04, 2011 5:26 am

It would really help if wxDev-C++ could be told to use a different version of the project being built. Suppose I have trunk, 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, and 2.0 versions of the project. Each will have its own source code. Some might use different build options. While I could have separate project files for each, doing so might break SVN integration. Does wxDev-C++ have a solution?

Yes. You could use different project profiles. They are kind of like different workspaces or solutions in other IDEs.

Go to Project->Project Options and click on the green plus button at the top of the window ("Create a new profile"). You can name the profile whatever you want (e.g. "build 1.0", "build pre-alpha 0.314", etc.). Each profile can specify different compilers and build options. Plus, you can just switch the compiler profile in the dropdown box to change between them.

The problem is that the different versions would be in different folders. i.e. Trunk versus 0.9. Each folder would have its own includes and source files. Those might change from file to file. I also don't manually edit makefiles. #-o
