Qt Creator not parsing arm-none-eabi-gcc compile output into issues

  • Hi,

    I am using meson (ninja) to build with arm-none-eabi-gcc.

    I have set a custom build step: ninja
    with arguments (to redirect to sterr): 3>&1 1>&2 2>&3

    When I build, I can see the output in the "compile output" pane but I cannot click on the file/line numbers there, nor are they populated in the "issues" tab.

    I have the Clang Code Model disabled, if that makes any difference. Qt Creater version 4.9.0.

    Any ideas? Perhaps I need to set arm-none-eabi-gcc as a recognised compiler somehow?

    @justyn can you give an example of that output? are the lines red or black in Creators compile output?


  • @aha_1980 the output is in red, which I think means it knows it is an error.

    Here is a sample:

    19:31:18: Running steps for project helloworld...
    19:31:18: Starting: "/usr/bin/ninja" 3>&1 1>&2 2>&3
    [1/3] Generating version.h with a custom command.

    ../../src/main.c:85:5: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in
    ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.
    19:31:19: The process "/usr/bin/ninja" exited with code 1.
    Error while building/deploying project helloworld (kit: ARM Bare Metal)
    The kit ARM Bare Metal has configuration issues which might be the root cause for this problem.
    When executing step "Custom Process Step"
    19:31:19: Elapsed time: 00:01.


    Looking more closely at the output, I see that it clearly says "The kit ARM Bare Metal has configuration issues which might be the root cause for this problem."

    I hadn't configured the compiler in the Kits section of the options.

    Having set the compiler correctly, it is now parsing the output! I should have spotted that earlier.

    Thanks for the assistance.
