11.4.2 Exec Directory

The exec directory for a project is the directory containing the executables for the project's main subprograms.

The exec directory is given by the value of the attribute Exec_Dir in the project file.

        for Exec_Dir use "executables";

The attribute Exec_Dir has a string value, the path name of the exec directory. The path name may be absolute or relative to the directory of the project file. This directory must already exist, and be writable.

By default, when the attribute Exec_Dir is not given an explicit value or when its value is the empty string, the exec directory is the same as the object directory of the project file.
