I use Linux, and have a great editor for working on (C++) code, but this has little in the way of contextual help. I had tried Eclipse for a few months, but it's so awful that I stopped.
I'm considering using CLion for my projects, which are all makefile driven.
I've had a look around the main website, and here on the discussions, but can't find an answer to my questions.
Does CLion have support for makefile-based projects, without the need to re-write the makefiles as cmake files? It would be fine to have thin cmake 'wrapper' files around the makefiles. I would primarily like CLion to be able to gather all its symbol information, to be able to launch a build, navigate errors, and run debugging sessions. I would like the makefile to remain as a primary source, though I would not expect CLion to be makefile-aware to the extent of making automatic modifications to it; I'm happy for that to remain manual.
Is there a guide on how the set up from pre-existing makefile-based projects is done, either a document, web page or video?
