I was going through pr2_controller tutorials and came across the portion where we must build and run the program. It says make the binary by typing make in the drive_base_tutorial directory. Where must I type this? In the CMakeList.txt file? and what does it mean by make the binary?

Thanks in advance

It means exactly what it says.

In your terminal, run:

roscd drive_base_tutorial

roscd drive_base_tutorial will take you to the drive_base_tutorial directory (you can also use cd for this).

make is a build tool; it will call cmake, which will use the information in your CMakeLists.txt to call the compiler and the linker, converting your C++ code into an executable.
