/usr/local/games/datadir?


How can I let my game know its datadir?

I utilize the usual automake procedure, although I don't yet fully understand it. I suppose I should add something similar to this somewhere:

AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED(DATADIR, "$DATADIR", [Data directory])

... and find the answer config.h?

thx!

I found the answer myself! Yay!
Out of sheer kindness, I will share my discovery with the world!


Add this to your Makefile.am and expect to find the complete path to your data in the DATADIR constant:

CPPFLAGS = @CPPFLAGS@ -DDATADIR=\"$(pkgdatadir)\"
