Is there a way to use the defined path variables in the "Linked Resources > Path Variables Settings View" in the "Paths and Symbols > Include directories Settings View"? If so, what is the correct way.




Path variables point to specific locations in the file system. The location of linked resources may be specified relative to path variables instead of fixed locations in the file system. By using path variables for locating linked resources, team members can share projects across computers with different directory structures.


Please refer the following CCES help path:
CrossCore Embedded Studio 2.4.0 > Integrated Development Environment > Managing CCES Projects > Workspace Organization > Path Variables


To create a new path variable please refer the below CCES help path:
CrossCore® Embedded Studio 2.5.0 > Integrated Development Environment > Managing CCES Projects > Resource Dialog Boxes > Select Path Variable Dialog Box > New Variable Dialog Box


Please note that the "Paths and Symbols > Include directories" Settings is used to include list of include paths, defined by the selected language. You may have to add the path of the header file in "CrossCore Blackfin C/C++ Compiler > Preprocessor > Additional include directories".
