Topic: Control/Command + Shift + R to delete .o files? (Read 897 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi -

Working with coding libraries it is less than optimal to remember to delete the .o files. Wondering 'delete before compile' in the IDE could be made an option - either through adding an optional control key to the 'compile' key command and/or adding a preference to the IDE to always delete the .o files.

Don't know how much work either would entail or if it screws up other things (like which library .o files to delete since compiling all would take more time than manually deleting them).

Probably other features have more urgency/importance.



Hi Roy,
this is a feature available since Arduino-0017.
The Object-Files created for the core and included libraries now live in the applet-dir of the sketch, which is automatically (re-)created when you compile. There is no need the delete the object-files manually any more.
