cbp2make is a stand-alone build tool that allows you to generate makefile(s) for GNU Make
out of Code::Blocks IDE project or workspace file.


-in <project_file>
specifies an input file or a list of files;

-cfg <configuration>
specifies a configuration file, see also --local and --global options;

-out <makefile>
specifies the name of a makefile or a list of makefiles;

-unix enables Unix / Linux compatible makefile generation;

enables Windows compatible makefile generation;

-mac enables Macintosh compatible makefile generation;

enables all target platforms at once;

-targets "<target1>[,<target2>[, ...]]"
specifies the only build targets that a makefile will be made for;

forces "flat" names for object files with limited character set;

forces "flat" paths for object files with no subdirectories;

allows to use multiline lists of objects which makes a makefile easier to read;

allows to use multiline macros;

allows a built-in dependency scanner for C/C++ projects;

disables command that erase directories for object files in 'clean' target;

disables command that erase directory for an output binary file in 'clean' target;

--target-case [keep|lower|upper]
specifies style for makefile targets;

Common options:
use configuration from current directory

use configuration from home directory

show project information

hide all messages

--help display this message

display version information


Some installation- or project-specific options, primarily toolchain settings, can be saved
to a configuration file. By default (since rev.110), cbp2make does not save any settings
to a configuration file unless the user explicitly specifies the --config option. A
configuration file can be either global (stored in user profile / home directory) or local
(stored in current directory).

Please, keep in mind that since cbp2make is in early stage of development, an old
configuration file may become incompatible with new tool version and it may be necessary
to update it manually or initialize a new one.

When cbp2make is invoked, first it tries to load a local configuration file. If a local
configuration is missing, next attempt will be to load a global one. If this attempt is
not successful either, the default built-in configuration is used. Configuration lookup
order can be overridden with --local or --global command line options. If one of options
is supplied to cbp2make, non-specified configuration is not picked up even if the
specified one is missing and non-specified do exists.
