Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Linux build from source: "make clean"?

Hi all, is there a way to clean up all intermediate files after a successful Linux build to free some of the HD storage again, like "make clean", or maybe a simple way to install the binaries in, say, /opt, like other packages?

Thx in advance.

Yes, you run UnrealBuildTool with -clean option. It will only delete object files, but you can manually delete intermediate folder and if you use generated IDE project, you need to regenerate it again as UBT holds some project files in Intermediate

Thanks a lot for the help and sorry for the late reply, I got sidetracked ...

It seems UnrealBuildTool isn't included in a default build under Linux? I could find directories related to it but no compiled binary. However I have to postpone that issue for another couple of days ... other business inserted itself.

 make ARGS="-clean"

That's the command you are looking for
