The options on the Build Project menu provides a variety of options for projects in your workspace, such as building a project independently of your OS design.

This menu contains build commands and flags that modify these commands, resulting in more flexibility when determining the settings for a build.

This functionality is similar to the functionality available in a command-line prompt build window. The results of a build depend on the settings that you choose, and can vary widely.

You can customize the settings for a build according to your needs by first selecting the build flags you want to set, then selecting a build command to begin the build.

For more information about these options, see Advanced Build Project Menu Options.

The following build options are available.

CommandDescription
