installing new directory
« on: March 31, 2012, 06:43:28 pm »
Hi, I am currently trying to figure out how to program for a robot I built, but in order to do that I need to have a directory called "WPILib.h" installed so code blocks recognizes the functions.

PS: I have the file with the directory on it, all I need is a way to put it on codeblocks

Please read the FAQs. It might have the answer to your question.
http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=FAQ

My guess at the closest matching FAQ
http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=FAQ-Compiling_%28general%29#Q:_I_would_like_to_compile_a_project_using_some_non-standard_libraries._How_can_I_indicate_to_CodeBlocks_that_these_libraries_and_include_files_exist.3F

Please, try to rephrase your question; because I have no clear idea what your are asking.

in the beggining of a program there is always "#include (insert directory of choice)". I want my directory of choice to be "WPILib.h". But when I tried to compile it I was told no such directory existed.

PS: If you could also help out explaining what the FAQ was trying to have me do because there are multiple sub folders my downloaded directory.

What is wrong exactly?

(1) If you cannot find headers or other include files then add the directory to Build Options -> Search Directories
(2) If you cannot find libraries or object files then add the directory to Build Options -> Linker Settings

Once all files will be found, you can create a user project with the needed directories preset. Later oo, you won't need to specify the directories again.
