I am using this with the WinARM toolset. It's an expansion on someone else's suggestion for getting output from Gnu Make. Since I had the same problem as Gnu Make, I figure this should fix it for that too.

First. Create two files.
mymake.cmd and mymake.bat

mymake.cmd looks like this:
Code:
@echo off
command /c mymake.bat %1


If you happen to have 4NT or 4DOS, you can use them instead of command.exe.

mymake.bat looks like this:
Code:
@echo off
if [%1]==[all] make all
if [%1]==[program] make program
if [%1]==[clean] make clean
exit


In my workspace options I have:
Make Command Line = mymake.cmd program
Rebuild Command Line = mymake.cmd all
Clean Command Line = mymake.cmd clean

For you ARM folks, this even works when the lpc21isp.exe program is called from within the makefile. I just have to click in the screen for the Project Make tab to have the interactive prompts show up.

Here are the details about the reported problem with the GNU make utility, with an alternative but less effective work around Wink

As command.exe is no more, here is yet another two step method that will work with Gnu Make and cmd.exe

As with bfmitch's method, create two files (my names are different Very Happy ):

gnumake.cmd
Code:
@echo off
start /min /w gnumake2.cmd %1 %2
type gnumake.out
del gnumake.out


gnumake2.cmd
Code:
@echo off
make -f %1 %2 > gnumake.out
exit


In the Workspace Options Dialog, the command line is:
    Make Command Line: gnumake project.mak all

where project.mak is the makefile and all is the make target.

Caveat: The output does not appear in Zeus until make has completed. To see a running status of make, remove the /min switch from the start command. This will result in a new CMD window opening and displaying make execution and output.

This modified two step works because the start command gives make its own environment, and handles, so that it does not corrupt the output capture of Zeus. As such, this method should work with any tool that generates the DuplicateHandle(In) failed (e=6) error.
