What is the difference between "compile" and "build"?

Hi!

I know that every time I click "run" in a project, the project will be compile automatically. However, I'm curious and want to know what is the difference between "Compile" and "Build".

Can you tell me?

Thank you!

    The "compile" command checks to see which files have been modified by looking at the create dates for the unit files, and then updates those. "Build" just goes ahead and recompiles the whole thing without checking.
