Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am working with openSuse using C++ (I am a bit new to it)
I have a limited access on this computer, which means I can't be a super user, so in order to add my header files, I put them in a folder, and used this command in the bash shell
and when I tested using
$ echo $PATH
I found that my path is included, but whenever I run the file, it says that it can't find the files.
Adding the directory containing the headers to PATH isn't going to work. You need to add the path to the directory to your CXXFLAGS variable. Something along these lines
However, if the headers you need are in a standard location such as /usr/include, you should be able to use them even without root access. They will be readable to all and that is all that need be done.
