Description Keith Seitz 2002-10-25 17:29:46 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
If I run any kind of tool in the CDT (build/make or external build tool like
configure), it cannot be aborted. It must complete. This is especially painful
if one forgets to select the "stop on error" option of the build preferences for
a project.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create external build tool to run configure (for example)
2. run this tool.
3. before it finishes, click "cancel"... The button is disabled, but nothing
really happens until the tool finishes executing.

Do the same for building a project.

Actual Results:  It just keeps on going and going and going.

Expected Results:  Should have stopped.

See upstream bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=41752

This is an eclipse platform issue rather than a CDT one.  I'll move
the upstream PR to the proper eclipse.org component.

Well, this, too, seems to be rectified with the Eclipse 3.0/CDT 2.0
release. Yeah!
