Building and Making:

Compiling and making is integrated into vxe. What vxe does is it looks for a make file in the current working directory, and call the standard make command against the make file. The output of the make command will be displayed in the output text window. The most useful feature here is when syntax errors are reported, vxe helps you quickly jump to the source code where the error occurred. With command line making, you have to go to another terminal and open your source files one by one and then try to go to the line of the error. In vxe, you simply click to extend select the file name and line number of the reported error, the source code file will be opened if not opened yet and the line will be highlighted for you. To make in a different directory, you need to change the working directory through menu item or tool buttton.
