Can you be more specific? What do you mean by convert several packages into C++ code? Do you mean transforming a multi-processes application into a single process?

ROS nodes are just executables which can be run from the terminal or CodeBlocks. You will need to figure out how to set environment variables inside Code Blocks, but if you can do that you should not have a problem launching any of the c++ executables from within CodeBlocks.

To edit a ROS package using CodeBlocks, one can generate the project file using cmake:

roscd <your_package>
mkdir build_codeblocks 
cd build_codeblocks 
cmake -G "CodeBlocks - Unix Makefiles" ..

According to http://www.cmake.org/Wiki/CMake_Generator_Specific_Information , you need cmake version at least 2.6.

Start CodeBlocks from Terminal directly rather than click on the app launcher. In this way, codeblocks will inherit all ROS_* variable from bash shell.

Then open the your_package.cbp using CodeBlocks. You should be able to compile without any problem.

When Run, remember to choose the right target, <your_pacakge> not the default "all"

I meant running the packages in codeblocks form instead of using the terminals in linux. Because I'm quite new to this and I actually tried the http://www.ros.org/wiki/IDEs#CodeBlocks but I thought this is not I wanted.
