 Hm, you might have misunderstood me
or perhaps I didn't make myself clear: Compiler switches are by all
means useful and I myself do use them (In fact, I sometimes set up
distict switches for each .cpp). And I'm glad and very grateful that my
favourite build system (CMake) offers a great support in that regard. 

I was just pointing out to Geronimo that the matter is a bit more
complicated than just "setting up custom compiler switches for my
project" in one or few GUI fields. It would actually probably require a
set of GUI settings for each file separately, which would (at least for
me) be very impractical. 

 I was also suspicious about compiler
switches Geronimo was looking to use, because since he is a C++
beginner, it sounds to me like someone somewhere suggested "you need a
-g compiler switch for debugging", but that kind of thing should be done
differently. Maybe I was wrong, maybe he really does need custom

 So all in all, I agree with you. (You sound like a much
more experienced programmer than myself anyway ;-) )
