saving compiled files in a different folder to source?
« on: April 13, 2021, 03:50:19 pm »
Hi
I am running Lazarus IDE v2.0.12 32 bit on Windows 10 64 bit.

Say I have a folder on my disk containing all of the source code for a project (a .ico, .lpi, .lpr, .lps, .res, .lfm and some .pas files).

How do I configure Lazarus so that when I "compile" or "run" it adds nothing to this source folder but instead uses a completely different folder to put all of its "stuff" and the resultant exe file?

thanks, DNJ

I haven't tried but I believe you can change it by:

Lazarus main menu
> Project > Project Options > left panel: Compiler Options > Paths

Project > Project Options > Compiler Options > Paths > Unit output directory

This had the effect of putting .o .or .ppu and .compiled files in the specified folder, however the .exe file still ends up in the same folder as the source code files

Tested on Lazarus 2.0.10 Linux, it works if I set the path and filename: Target file name (-o).

There is a related bug :
 https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=38170
Somebody should study the code and fix it. Target was set to the next 2.2 release.
Mostly Lazarus trunk and FPC 3.2 on Manjaro Linux 64-bit.

Hey dieselnutjob,

I usually have all my source files under:
Project-Folder/src

So all my projects under Project Options(CTRL+SHIFT+F11)->Paths have what you can see on the image.
Pay attention to (-Fu) and (-o), please

This will put all the compiled intermediate files under:
Project-Folder/bin/lib/CPU-OS

And the executable/binary under
Project-Folder/bin/

Hope this helps

Cheers,
Gus
