compiling header file and souce files
 
hi all,

i am a newbie in linux..
anyone can help how to find out the meaning of -I. in compiling and linking the header file and source file ==> g++ -I. file1.cpp file2.cpp

Why don't you check the man page of g++ instead of asking here? First go through the man page, if you don't understand there then ask here.

Welcome to LQ. .. :) ..


-I<dir> : Tells where to find the headers.
Example : -I/usr/include -I.

-I. is the current directory.
One period ( . ) means the current directory.
