Just as a diversion I decided to install fortune
, and upon compile time I and error informing me that "recode.h: No such file or directory" in line 143 of fortune.c. That line is
From my meger experience with C and google searches it is my understanding that I'm missing the recode header in /usr/include/.
I couldn't find any references to it in the GNU C library
but this page
states that "... this header file is still fairly new in C standards, and likely does not exist everywhere," but it says nothing about how to obtain it. ( I realize that this page is part of a larger book, and I have skimmed through that. )
Am I correct in believing that I'm missing a header? If so, how do I obtain recode.h?
I apologize if this would have been better suited to the software forum, but I did not know if this was Slack specific or not. I'm guessing it's not, but I'm still not quite sure.
( If anyone happens to have a suggestion on materials about GNU headers that would be appreciated too. )
