problems with #include

Recommended Posts

I tried to include a C header that I wrote into my source file, and the compiler ( Bloodshed DEV C/C++ ) gave me this error: #include expects "FILENAME" or I tried a bunch of stuff, but none of it worked. The header is called GMOD.H and the source file is pacman.c Thanks

when you include a header file made by yourself, you must use
#include "gmod.h"
instead of #include <gmod.h>
beacause < and > are for standard include files, that means that the compiler searches the standard include directory to find the header. If you use "" then it searches the directory the source code is.

hope that helps !

Unless you set up search-path environment variables.
