Standard Make vs. Managed Make in CDT in Eclipse

From this presentation, here are differences between Standard Make and Managed Make in CDT in Eclipse.

Standard Make
  • Re-uses existing makefiles
  • Simple integration with arbitrary build systems
  • Parsing of toolchain output to generate error markers
Managed Make
  • Manages compiles and toolchain directly
  • No makefile editing
  • Fine control over compile, link settings
Also, see "When do I use the standard make feature" from the CDT FAQ.
