Isn't it the green lightning bolt?
Yes it's the green bolt .
That wouldn't shock me DE; Dev-C++ doesn't run on makefiles. That's the whole point of an IDE
Chris that's not what I was asking about .
actually, you can create makefiles using Dev-C++....despite the fact that it doesn't use them
I know how to bring up the Makefile Dialog Box, but that is where I run into the problem. I open a project and click the "Generate Makefile" bolt (icon). Then I get a makefile box with a selection of 'gcc', 'g++', 'cc', and 'bcc' then there is a section that says: 'Extra Parameters that must given to the compiler [optional]:'. What I'm wanting is to know what other type of options are there I've searched the help file and found nothing. I'm mainly wanting to know how to make the makefile generator for Dev-C++ rename the exe file and compile folders (similar to the compiling the example folders in allegro). I realize that I'd have to make a makefile in the folder most likely, but how do I make the make file tell the other makefiles in the other folders for the program to run to compile that folder?
