TLDR: specify directory of where output binary goes.
I have a project structured in the format below (if it's not proper, advice is welcome). The top level crate (or package, not sure how it should be called) is a workspace with 2 members, the generated and generator crate. The generator crate generates rust files and saves them in
I have a script in
generated_crate that calls
cargo run iteratively on all the generated files but I'd rather compile and build all the binaries and put them in some folder that I specify inside the generated crate, where I can run them all at once. In the future I'll be compiling the generated files with different opt flags, which is why I want to be able to specify the build location.
Currently when I run
cargo build from inside the generated crate, it generates to the
target directory located at the top level workspace (see in the tree below).
