The projects’s Makefile controls different features and settings for the output program, and additionally can be added to for custom build structres if needed. This section highlights the avaible options.
To edit these options, open the makefile file inside the project’s folder in a text editor.
This is the name of the program variable that will be stored on the calculator.
NAME ?= PRGM
Icons make a more polished program that can be displayed in shells such as Cesium.
Place a 16x16 image in the same directory as the makefile with the name of whatever ICON is defined as, e.g. icon.png.
ICON ?= icon.png
Change DESCRIPTION to the program’s description. It is recommended to keep this under 25 characters.
The description will be displayed in shells such as Cesium.
DESCRIPTION ?= "My awesome program"
Programs can tend to be quite large from a variety of factors such as sprites, bloated code, or other issues. The toolchain offers the ability to compress programs into a self-extracting executable. This does not change the execution size, but rather the executable’s storage size.
To enable this feature, open the project’s makefile and edit the line:
COMPRESSED ?= YES
Programs can be built to be stored in the archive rather than RAM. To enable this feature, open the project’s makefile and change the line:
ARCHIVED ?= YES
CFLAGS / CXXFLAGS¶
These flags are passed to the clang compiler. CFLAGS is used for C source files; CXXFLAGS is used for CPP source files.
CFLAGS ?= -Wall -Wextra -Oz CXXFLAGS ?= -Wall -Wextra -Oz
