Code::Blocks projects/workspaces are described in XML files. Here are contained links to documentation for each one of them.

This information is of interest to anyone wanting to write an importer/exporter/generator for other build systems/environments and therefore add support for Code::Blocks.


Defines a Code::Blocks workspace (collection of projects).
Defines a Code::Blocks project.


Additional files used in the proposed XML compiler branch:

Defines a Code::Blocks compiler interface and auto-detection routines.
Defines the options and regular expressions for a Code::Blocks compiler.


Code::Blocks also produces a couple other files (*.layout and *.depend) but they only contain state information so they are not really useful to anyone else other than Code::Blocks itself.
