Unix headers


Hi,

I am new to *nix. I wanted to understand the strange naming convention that is present in some unix programs i have seen.

example : #include <sys/types.h>


Is sys some directory where types.h is placed ? I am using g++ , any way i can find out where my SDK headers are located ?

Thanks!

Hi -

It's a standard C convention: you'll find "#include <sys/types>" in DOS and Windows, too.

Anyway, the customary home for these files is here:

/usr/local/include

You can verify where they're located on your system with a command like this:

Quote:
find / -name stdio.h -print 2> /dev/null
'Hope that helps .. PSM
