I want to include a header using a path. Which one would be correct syntax?: #include <C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ADMIN\MY DOCUMENTS\TEST\test.h> or #include <C:\\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\\ADMIN\\MY DOCUMENTS\\TEST\\test.h> Or should I use "" instead of <>?

#include "whatever.bork" will first look in the current directory for a whatever.bork file, and then, in the 'standard include locations'.

#include <whatever.bork> will directly look for whatever.bork in the 'standard include locations'.

In any case, the preferred syntax is to use forward slashes, not backslashes - even on windows. So you should probably go with

#include "C:/Documents and Settings/Admin/My Documents/Test/test.h"

#include "whatever.bork"

Is that the new extension in C++0X?


Basically: lmao.
