<h1>Creating a makefile</h1>

<p>For the purpose of this tutorial, you were instructed to create a C++ Project which requires you to create a makefile.</p>

<p>To create a makefile:</p>
<ol>
  <li>In the <strong>Project Explorer</strong> view, right-click the <strong>HelloWorld</strong> project 
  folder and select <strong>New &gt; File</strong>.
  <li>In the <strong>File name</strong> box, type <strong>makefile</strong>.</li>
  <li>Click <strong>Finish</strong>.</li>
  <li>Type the gnu make instructions below in the editor. Lines are 
  indented with tab characters, not with spaces.</li>

<blockquote>
  <p>
  <br>
  all: hello.exe<br>
  <br>
  clean:<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; rm main.o hello.exe<br>
  <br>
  hello.exe: main.o<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; g++ -g -o hello main.o<br>
  <br>
  main.o:<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; g++ -c -g main.cpp<br>
&nbsp;</p>
</blockquote>
  <li>Click <strong>File &gt; 
  Save</strong>.</li></ol>

<p>Your new makefile, along with your main.cpp file are 
displayed in the Project Explorer view. Your project now 
contains main.cpp and makefile. You can now build your HelloWorld project.</p>
