I must be missing something simple

Post by OBI_Ron » 2012-05-11, 01:03

Hello Everyone,

I am running on Linux.
I have compiled sucessfully, now I would like to copy the executable files to the top level directory.

Question - The executable CaWE has the same name as the folder, so I cannot copy it there without renaming it.

As I see it, my options are to either rename it to CaWE.exe, or simply Cawe.

It seems to run fine with either method, but I would like to know if on method or the other will cause me any problems further along.

Thanks in advance!!

It's fine to do that, no problems expected.
In fact, in our binary releases we do exactly the same, renaming CaWE to CaWE-bin.

Note that when you compile yourself, it is not strictly required to copy the executables to the top-level directory, you can also call them in their build directory as described in item 3. at http://www.cafu.de/wiki/cppdev:gettings ... w_programs
Best regards,
