Hi, I am create a basic framework for the project I am going to be working on. My question is simply how to include header files not in the directory you are compiling from? My Hierarchy is as follows.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
bitmap.hpp //the header file i am struggling to include
prg_core.hpp //includes all the header files stored in the prg folder
//assorted header files
linux_library //has two libraries one for debug and one for release namely prgcore64
The command I am typing is as follows, I am typing it whilst in the "My_Code_Folder" from the above directory in the terminal: g++ -pedantic -I../inc -L../lib/linux src/main.cpp src/bitmap.cpp -l prgcore64 -o img_manip
I get the following errors:
src/main.cpp:2:22: error: bitmap.hpp: No such file or directory
src/main.cpp: In function ‘int main()’:
src/main.cpp:6: error: ‘hello’ was not declared in this scope
src/bitmap.cpp:1:26: error: inc/bitmap.hpp: No such file or directory
Its worth noting that the header file prg_core.hpp that is being is include is fine. I assume this is because i specify where to find it. I think I can get around the error by using #include "../inc/bitmap.hpp" but I think there is probably a better way using <> so I wouldn't mind understanding how it works a little better. Thanks in advance.
I don't think so because the path I pass to the compiler goes to the include folder for the library that i am using. I think that might be the issue I am having. My program is using on "inc" folder and the library is using its own one. So to do it the way you suggest I would have to have something like:
#include <../image_manipulation_ica/inc/bitmap.hpp> which is annoying :(
