Additional Build Customization

In this example, the UMTS base station consists of a mix of C and C++ source files. Some C++ compilers can handle both the C and C++ languages; other compilers are not able to do this.

Recall that you selected the TDP for the C++ compiler on your machine. On Windows, the Visual C++ 6.0 TDP can process both C and C++ files. For the GNU compiler on Windows, and for the native compilers on Linux, you need to specify a C language TDP for the .c source files:

If you're using the GNU compiler on Windows, or the native compilers on Linux:

To set a C language TDP for .c files:

  1. In the Project Browser, right-click the tcpsck.c child node of the BaseStation application node and select Settings.

  2. Position the Configuration Settings window that has opened so that you can easily see the Project Browser.

  3. Expand the Build node in the tree on the left-hand side of the window and left-click the Build Options child node.

  4. Click the dropdown list for the Target Deployment Port setting. It's current value is the TDP selected when you created the project.

  5. Expand the dropdown list - either by left-clicking the field one more time or by selecting the dropdown list arrow to the right - and select the corresponding C language TDP for your machine. Click Apply once the new TDP is selected.

  6. Back in the Project Browser, select the node for the file UmtsCode.c and then follow steps 4 and 5 above.

  7. Select the node for the file UmtsMsg.c in the Project Browser and then follow steps 4 and 5 above.

  8. In the Configuration Settings window, click OK.

Note   Only the settings for these specific file nodes have been changed; all other file nodes continue to use the default TDP settings.
