Synopsis

codeblocks [-h] [-ns] [-d] [--prefix <str>] [-p <str>] [--profile <str>] [--rebuild] [--build] [--target <str>] [--no-batch-window-close] [--batch-build-notify] [filename(s)...]

Description

codeblocks launches the Code::Blocks IDE. Its various command-line arguments are listed below.

Options

-h, --help
Displays the list of accepted command-line arguments.
-ns
Do not display a splash screen on startup. The splash screen can be completely disabled in the program's environment options.
-d
Enable the debugging log.
--prefix
Specify an alternate path for Code::Blocks to find its shared files.
-p, --profile
Set which profile to use. If you set the profile to ask , Code::Blocks will display a list with all the known profiles to choose from.
--rebuild
Start a batch rebuild (i.e. "clean" and "build") job on the filenames passed as arguments. The filenames can be either projects or workspaces.
--build
Start a batch build (i.e. no "clean") job on the filenames passed as arguments. The filenames can be either projects or workspaces.
--target
Specify a single build target to build in the batch build (or rebuild) job.
--no-batch-window-close
When the batch job ends, the log window closes too. This option keeps it open until you manually close it.
--batch-build-notify
Display a message when the batch job finishes.

Examples

Batch build myproject.cpp, only the "Debug" target and keep the batch job window open when finished:

codeblocks --build --target="Debug" --no-batch-window-close myproject.cbp

Batch rebuild everything in myproject.cbp:
codeblocks --rebuild myproject.cbp
