CLion Setup: Compile and Run with gcc - A Step-by-Step Guide
If you're a programmer using CLion as your development environment, you might be wondering how to set up your compiler to compile and run your code using gcc. In this step-by-step guide, we'll go over the process of setting up CLion to work with gcc.
Step 1: Install gcc
The first step is to install gcc on your computer if you haven't already done so. You can download gcc from the official website and follow the installation instructions. Once you have installed gcc, make sure it's added to your system's PATH environment variable.
Step 2: Configure CLion
Open CLion and navigate to "File" > "Settings" > "Build, Execution, Deployment" > "Toolchains". Click the "+" button to add a new toolchain.
Select "Custom" as the toolchain type and name it "gcc". In the "C Compiler" field, enter the path to your gcc executable. You can find the path by running "which gcc" in your terminal. In the "C++ Compiler" field, enter the path to your g++ executable.
Step 3: Create a new project
Create a new project in CLion and select "C++ Executable" as the project type. Make sure to select the "gcc" toolchain we just created in the previous step.
Step 4: Write and run your code
Write your code in the main.cpp file and click the "Run" button in CLion to compile and run your code using gcc.
By following these simple steps, you can easily set up CLion to work with gcc and start writing and running your code with ease. Remember to always keep your compiler up to date and make sure it's added to your system's PATH environment variable for seamless integration with your development environment.
