Command line VDSP - export makefile

I am running Analog Devices VDSP 5.0 with update 8. I cant find a way to automatically create a .mak file through CMD given that I already have a .dpj file. The only way it seems I can do this is via the IDE. Is this a limitation of the product, or is there a workaround?

  • Hi Daniel,

    Apologies for our delayed response

    There is no command line switch to generate a makefile from a VisualDSP++ project. However, there are ways this can be achieved through the VisualDSP++ Automation Interface.  The makefile generation is done through the ADspProject object's "ExportToMakefile" method, export the makefile using a script.

    For more information, see the documentation at 'Help: Contents: Automation: Automation: API Reference: ADspProject'.

    Best Regards,
