When you create a new Java project in the JDT, you will get the option
to set source exclusion filters via the Source tab in the Java project
wizard (for existing Java projects, you can also do this via the project
This option is lacking when you create a new standard/managed make C/C++
project in the CDT. However, you can set source and output exclusion
filters after a project has been created via the project properties
(i.e. the Source and Output tabs in the C/C++ Project Paths settings).
Unfortunately, if you want to create a new CDT project from a large
legacy source structure that contains various binaries and other
non-source files interleaved in the same directory structure as the
source files, CDT will start to process the full contents of this large
directory structure as soon as the project is created and before the
user gets a chance to set appropriate exclusion filters via the project
properties. This can be a very time and CPU consuming process and
frustrating experience for the user.
If the Source and Output tabs in the CDT project properties would be
available in the CDT project wizards as well, just as in JDT, this issue
would no longer be a problem.
