I''m using Visual Studio .NET here. I have all my source in a /src/ directory. I want to have all my build output in a /bin/ directory. This makes it very nice to see what I need to see, which is not a lot at a time. And make it look professional, aesthetics-wise. But when making my project, I want to include files from these directories. Say this is my /PROJECT/ directory: ...Contents of /PROJECT/... Project.sln [used to be .dsw] /src/ /bin/ /docs/ And I want to #include something. How do I do this? Say I have two files in two folders src/engine/geometry/geometry.h and src/game/cworld.h CWorld needs to know about "geometry.h" for whatever reason. But this doesn''t work in cworld.h: #include "src/engine/geometry/geometry.h" nor does #include "/src/engine/geometry/geometry.h" nor does #include "../src/engine/geometry/geometry.h" The only I got to work is #include <src/engine/geometry/geometry.h> where I defined my browse directories to first search in the project directory, using the $(ProjectDir) macro. Is there a way to get around this? So I can drop the < and >''s? And no, my c++ books won''t clue me in. Thanks
