Sounds absurd! Why would one edit files on one machine, and compile on another? But there is a niche for such kind of activity. The biggest reason being the presence of compiler on host/target machine.
Assuming, you have a setup where compilation takes place on a remote machine,
Linux, but you want to edit your source code in
Eclipse Help? How much?
This big issue can be broken into three parts.
(Always) Sync source code from
Trigger build from
- make all
- make clean
Sync output paths (
Windows) so that Eclipse can take you to correct location for compiler warnings and errors.
Instead of just speaking of theories, we will see actually happen on a live project here. For this particular use case, we are building A QT based from Windows 7 machine on Ubuntu Linux.
