C header files


I am a new linux user. Just feeling my way around and trying to learn.
I need to find the directory where the C HEADER files are stored in debian linux etch.
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

the "standard" ones are most of the time stored in /usr/include/
in order to use them, remember to have the corresponding developement package (glibc-dev for example)

happy learning

Take a look in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/source/include.

Those ` are the back-quotes, the ones paired with the ~ key on your keyboard.

If you are merely doing C s/w development, and need the linux headers, they are located in /usr/include/linux.
