Delete node binaries

asked 2018-03-04 21:38:10 -0500


I wonder if it is possible to delete the binary files of a particular node from a workspace because I want to replace its source file with another one of the same name and generate a new binary file from the new source file. If I just replace the source file, it won't generate a new binary file when I do catkin_make. Right now, I'm deleting the devel and build folders to delete all the binary files.

Replacing the source should work, as make should detect that it has changed and then proceed to build the new binary. If that doesn't work then that would be considered a bug.

As to the binaries themselves: they are located in $CATKIN_WS/devel/lib.
