    abld command

    I'm new with Nokia C++ SDK. I run into problem with abld command. Could someone give a hand?

    I try to build the HelloWorld example. When I type the following command:

    C:\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Epoc32Ex\HelloWorld>bldmake bldfile

    BLDMAKE - Project building Utility (Build 227)

    BLDMAKE {options} [<command>] [<platform>]

    <command>: (case insensitive)
    BLDFILES - create build batch files
    CLEAN - remove all files bldmake creates
    INF - display basic BLD.INF syntax
    PLAT - display platform macros

    <platform>: (case insensitive)
    if not specified, defaults to "ALL"

    Options: (case insensitive)
    -v -> verbose mode
    -k -> keep going even if files are missing

    and then command
    C:\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Epoc32Ex\HelloWorld>abld makefile wins

    I get this error notice:

    Bad command or filename

    Problem is the same with every project platforms (wins,resource,vc6)

    My PC's Operating Systems is Win98 and I have Microsoft Visual 6.0 C++. Do this may have something to do with my problems?(I know that the SDK requirements are for WIN NT, but the SDK's Java version works fine with Win98)

    Thanks
    P.

    I think (hope) that it is as simple as typing :

    bldmake bldfiles
    and not
    bldmake bldfile

    RE: abld command

    try this :

    bldmake bldfiles -v

    This should print our more error information. For example mine looks like this :

    RE: abld command

    I think I know what it might be. The bldmake perl scripts tries to runn cpp.exe, which I am guessing it can not find, or, is the wrong version. Type "CPP -v" on the command line i get the following:

    D:\Symbian\>cpp -v
    GNU CPP version 2.9-psion-98r2 (Symbian build 542) (ARM/EPOC/PE)
    #include "..." search starts here:
    End of search list.
