Background

These steps assume you are using the CDT's tool set. Before following these instructions, please make sure you have followed these instructions first.

Steps

  • Update your path to include the bin directories under mingw and msys. These directories were installed under the Eclipse directory when installing the wascana plugin. In my particular case, I installed Eclipse under C:\learncpp\eclipse, so I added to my path for all DOS shells:
    • C:\learncpp\eclipse\mingw\bin;C:\learncpp\eclipse\msys\bin

  • Download CppUTest (version 2.3 as of this writing): CppUTest at Sourceforge
  • Extract the zip somewhere (I'll be using c:\learncpp\CppUTest23 for this example)
  • Switch to the install directory
c:>cd C:\learncpp\cpputest23
  • We don't have a unix shell but we are using unix tools, so neither of the install scripts do exactly what we need. Manually set the variable CPP_U_TEST:
cd C:\learncpp\cpputest23>set CPP_U_TEST=c:\learncpp\cpputest23
  • Note: you probably need to add the following line to the makefile (depends on a few variables, it is safe to always add it):
CC=gcc
  • Now it's a matter of using make:
C:\learncpp\cpputest23>make clean
C:\learncpp\cpputest23>make all

Note, you should be able to simply type "make clean all", that did not work so I just used 2 commands.

  • Here's a trace from my machine:
C:\workspaces\CppUTest>make clean
