Applet subdirectory (???)

Using latest release of Arduino IDE 1.0

I take from this: http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/BuildProcess that the .o and hex files should be created in a sub-directory of the sketch's directory called /applet.

However, this is NOT happening. No such directory gets created, even if I have 'Delete previous applet or application folder on export" un-checked.

Does anyone have any other idea as to where Arduino might be creating these files?

On a Windows system this is the location of the build directory.
The will be specific to your username and the build.tmp will be some unique number that is generated for each new instance of your project.

You can see this information in the verbose output if you go into preferences and turn on Show verbose output during: compilation

C:\Users<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\build.tmp\Blink.cpp.hex

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet. ;)

Looking at the page's history, the last time it was updated was for release 0011 back in 2008.

Silly me,

Thanks folks!!

Much appreciated.

Is there any way to get this feature back, I mean all files get saved in the sketch folder, cpp, hex file etc.

My main requirement is the hex file, as I use non arduino boards most of the time and also need to simulate my circuits on proteus.

Thanks in advance.

Short of hacking the IDE...

... if you're going to not use Arduino boards and use other tools like simulators, perhaps not use the IDE to compile at all.

Can you point me to a replacement which will run the arduino code but also give me all the files...

I am googling too.

Woah, I was not expecting such a quick reply...... Thanks

Well, I found 2 solutions which use different ide: will try tonight and post update here...

And a make file: https://github.com/sudar/Arduino-Makefile

The IDE comes with everything you need to compile without it, except a build process. Make files are popular, like you found. There's also an article in the playground on using Eclipse.
