Important Information for users of NXP LPCXpresso

This site is for users of Code Red branded products.

Automated builds from the command line

Starting with Red Suite 3, you can run an automated build from the command line with Red Suite using the following instructions. Note that Red Suite 3 or greater is required - it will not work with Red Suite 2.

  1. Open a command prompt window
  2. Set up the paths so the compiler etc can be found by the tools. The following directories will need to be added to the path
    1. <install>/lpcxpresso/bin or <install>/redsuite/bin

    2. <install>/lpcxpresso/tools/bin or <install>/redsuite/tools/bin

    3. On Windows only, the following will also need to be added
      1. <install>/lpcxpresso/msys/bin or <install>/redsuite/msys/bin

  3. Use the <product> application with the following options (On Windows only, a 'c' must be added to the end of the excutable name, which indicates this is the command line version of the tool). Note 1: options are case sensitive. Note 2: replace <product> with your product name.

<product>c -nosplash 
        -application org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core.headlessbuild 
        -import {[uri:/]/path/to/project} 
        -build {project_name[/build_config] | all} 
        -cleanBuild {project_name[/build_config] | all}
        -data /path/to/workspace


To clean and build all the projects in the workspace c:\workspace\product, run the following command

RedSuite3c -nosplash -application org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core.headlessbuild -cleanBuild all -build all -data c:\workspace\product

Note: This will build every build configuration (e.g. Debug and Release).

To clean and build the Release configuration of my_project (using Red Suite 4 or greater):

redsuitec -nosplash -application org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core.headlessbuild -cleanBuild my_project/Release -build my_project/Release -data c:\workspace\product
