Hi I have been programming Altera fpgas as hardware devices for many years. I have recently successfully created and run a fairly large c program in a NiosII processor using the Altera Monitor program. Now I want to use makefiles etc., as I am used to doing by scripting, but I am not used to IDEs.
I have tried two of the simple example Hello World programs in the Eclipse IDE that comes with Quartus II 11.1sp2.
The examples appear to build and compile OK, but if run I see no output in the console window, if I try debug I get an error message. I am running as administrator. In more detail :
I have tried :
Creating a simple application - this is Hello_World
Creating a Makefile project - this is HelloWorld :
When I try "run configurations" I see :
If I then click on [run], in the console window I see a brief message from make (nothing to do), but no "hello world" message :
If I try "debug configurations I see :
and if I click on [debug] I see the message from make in the console window :
**** Build of configuration Default for project HelloWorld ****
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
and an error message pops up :
I have checked for the debugger - exists in both the cygwin and mingw32 bin directories :
Does anyone have any ideas ?
cheers, Beau Webber
