    hello everybody,

    what i 'm trying to do is to run my C++ project that was developed under Linux
    using Xcode. i followed the steps in PortingUnix.pdf (Apple Developer) and my code was builted successfully (i defined compilation and building to be done with a Makefile by creating a new target "built with make").

    the problem is that i cannot define the executable
    i select Xcode>Project>New Custom Executable ...
    the dialogue box asks me to choose an executable path
    but it doesn 't let me choose simply for the folder where my project is located
    and i don 't know what is asking for :(

    any suggestions please ?

    You select the executable that you have already compiled. Not the folder. If you follow the instructions you just posted it should be pretty clear.
