The Compile All Tool can be used to check if all targets in a directory compile. It recursively scans all directories and looks for files with a .ecf extension. For each configuration file all targets are first clean melted, then frozen and at the end finalized.

Command-line Options

To see the list of available command-line options and their help information, use the '/?' switch.


This tool was started by Patrickr and now maintained by the EiffelSoftware team.

Checking everything in the trunk still compiles

To check if everything in the trunk still compiles, use the following setup:

  1. create a directory where to put the EIFGENs into, e.g. C:\compile
  2. compile_all -l C:\60dev -eifgen C:\compile -ignore C:\60dev\tools\compile_all\baseline\trunk.ini -no_clean -no_c_compile -no_freeze -no_finalize
