"Command /.../jam failed with exit code 1"- huh? - Joseph Duchesne - Mar 28, 2006 12:14 PM

I'm getting the error:
"Command /Developer/Private/jam failed with exit code 1"

I'm using XCode 2.2, SDL, Newton, C++, and OpenGL. I was just programming a bit that would save my heightmaps as obj files and it stopped compiling. I tried deleting the code I had made, that didn't work, and now my code won't compile: I get that error every time and no explanation. I don't even know what jam does...

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Under the Build menu select Buid Results, click on the error and make sure you have the messages enabled (click on the button to the left of the yellow warning icon).

In this window you'll see why jam failed.

Jam is a build system that Xcode used to use, but I was under the impression that they'd switched it in Xcode 2/2.1 onwards.
