UEStudio integrated development environment tour: compile

The UEStudio tour is intended to guide you through some of the advanced IDE features of the application. UEStudio includes all of the features of UltraEdit, the world's best text editor, which are not covered here.

UEStudio tour: compile

Not only is UEStudio versatile and flexible, it includes preconfigured and predefined project templates for many popular programming compilers and assemblers, including Microsoft Visual C++, Java, GNU C/C++, and over 30 others! This powerful capability provides users truly advanced IDE operations from within UEStudio. This is particularly significant realizing that most programs that offer such functionality cost hundreds of dollars more than UEStudio and lack the seasoned backbone of UltraEdit as its edit control engine.

Also, most programming compilers come packaged with an associated debugger and the debugger key in the compiler options (under linker options) will show this (for example for Visual Studio, the debugger is set to "msdev").

Debugger option in the compiler options config dialog

The compile command in UEStudio may be invoked either from the build menu or by using the compile button in the build toolbar.

Compile toolbar button

The compile command saves the active document if needed and then compiles it. If a compiler is not selected or the compiler options are not set for the project the select compiler dialog is displayed.

Compiler options may be edited by pressing the edit configuration button in the select compiler dialog.

If a compiler has been selected and options configured, then the Project Settings dialog is displayed:

...and the build process is started.

Supported compilers

Below is the list of compilers which are supported natively in UEStudio.

UEStudio allows you to add and configure multiple compilers. If the compiler which you need is not natively supported, the Help file contains extensive information regarding adding/modifying compiler configurations.
