Tool/software: Code Composer Studio
When I create a CCS project and deselect "Use default build command" and "Generate Makefiles automatically" I do not seem to be able to acquire the name of the active configuration (such as Debug, Release, or what ever I decide to name it). It is important to get this information since CCS assumes that I put the artifacts into a folder with the same name, so I need to be able to put them there in my custom build script. The intuitive solution would be an exported environment variable, such as ACTIVE_CONFIGURATION=Debug.
I tried to define it automatically with some arbitrary named variable from the view -> Project Properties -> Build -> Variables, but they don't seem to be exported either.... Which seems very counter intuitive in itself.
Is there a work around and will you implement this feature through preferably both functions mentioned above?
