*** multiple target patterns. Stop. error generated n DEV c++

  • Hi,

    I want to parse an XML file using DEV C++ for that I am using pugiXML ver1.7 I included pugi.cpp,pugi.hpp,pugiconfig.hpp files. After compiling it gives me error:: multiple target patterns at line $(BIN): $(OBJ) in below makefile

    I am novice user.Please help me out and give solution step by step. Here is my program. thanks in advance 🙂

    #include <pugixml.hpp>
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace pugi;
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    		const clock_t begin_time = clock();
    	//load existing xml file
    	xml_document doc; // this will create empty document in memory
    	xml_parse_result result = doc.load_file("F://Rup//M.tech 3rd sem//pugiXML//sample.xml", pugi::parse_default | pugi::parse_declaration);
    	if (!result)
    		cout << "Parse error: " << result.description()
    			<< ", character pos= " << result.offset;
    	else cout << "Success!!";
    	//Extracting parent 
    	cout << "Load result: " << result.description() << ", parent name: " 
    		<< doc.child("class").name() << endl; //this prints name of root element
    	cout << "Parent attribute:" << doc.child("class").attribute("name").value() << endl;
    	//xml_node panels = doc.child("class");
    	//cout << panels.name() << std::endl;
    	//Extracting child
    	//xml_node panel = panels.first_child();
    	cout << "first Child:" << doc.child("class").first_child().name() << endl;
    	cout << "first Child attr:" << doc.child("class").first_child().attribute("rollno").value() << endl;
    	//printing all values
    	for (xml_node classname = doc.child("class").first_child(); classname; classname = classname.next_sibling())
    		cout << classname.name() << endl;
    		for (xml_node stud = classname.first_child(); stud; stud = stud.next_sibling())
    			std::cout << stud.name() << "=" << stud.text().get() << std::endl;
    		cout << "  " << endl;
    	std::cout << float( clock () - begin_time ) /  CLOCKS_PER_SEC<<"  milli sec";
    	return 0;

  • Das ist aber echt ne wichtige Frage - zu Makefiles, nicht zu C++.

    Sounds like a problem with inproperly escaped characters. Have you tried escaping all the colons and all the spaces? I see that some spaces are escaped and some are not. An unescaped colon would look like multiple targets to Make.
