Using other (non-standard) libraries in C++ of course
How do I use other libraries in C++? Specifically using the PDCurses library in the latest version of Visual Studio Express? What's the general way to set a libray up, how to use it? Thank you for your time and patience.
Go to Project --> <Project name> Properties (last menu item) --> Configuration Properties --> Linker --> Input. Then in the right pane, add the lib name in the first item Additional Dependencies.
Under Linker --> General, add the complete path to the lib in Additional Library Directories.
An alternative to the first paragraph above is to use a pragma in one of the *.c or *.cpp files
#pragma comment(lib, "libcurses.lib")
how to use it?
The same way you would use standard C libraries, include the *.h file in the *.c or *.cpp file that is going to use the functions in the library. If you're asking how to use PDCurses I think you will find tutorials if you just google for them.
A warning about using PDCurses -- it is a Windows port of a very very old *nix program which I believe even predates Windows 95. I used it on Unix in the mid 1980s. I don't know how well it works on modern Windows such as Windows 7/8/8.1.
OK, so HostGator for some reason no longer allows gcc/g++ access unless you have a Designated Server account, which is a lot of money to spend just to compile my "Hello World" program. Thus I figured I'd compile at home, then upload. Program is your regular old bare-bones Hello World ...
Hi. I have a form with list box : lst_product, datagridview : grd_order and button: btn_addline. lst_product has a list of product ids selected from database (MS Acess 2013) , grd_order is by default empty except for 2 headers and btn_addline adds rows to grd_order.
Hi, as I was told that my code doesn’t scale well at all, I thought perhaps I’d try to get a better understanding of interfaces/abstract classes and classes and the relationship between them.
I don’t want at this stage work on a big separate project as I've already got plenty ...
