Custom compiler

From Code::Blocks

TODO Text about what custom compiler does.

Bison Example

For example enable Custom Compiler to generate a cpp file form a bison grammatic.

Given a bison file "myparser.ypp" in your source tree. Select properties, go to advanced tab, tick custom compiler and add the line "bison $file".

Note if you use the supplied mingw binaries, you have to define BISON_SIMPLE=%CB%\share\bison.simple, BISON_HAIRY=%CB%\share\bison.hairy as environment variables. Otherwise you could install (Setup, without binaries has all required DLLs) and just add the "bin" directory to your System's PATH environment variable.
BISON_SIMPLE, BISON_HAIRY information taken from;prev_next=prev.
More a feature request than working example. It seems difficult to make Code::Blocks put the .cpp file into the source tree.
