Hi there;

I have an C applicaion that I implement in Eclipse IDE. The problem is that the header file that I created in another project is not recognized in my current project.

I suspect from the hierarchy or so, as the header is not in my current project and as said in another project.

I call it "xyz.h". What should I do? Note that standard C headers are recognized.

So what to do?

Kind regards.

Does your include search path include the directory where the header file can be found ?

Check your project settings for the include path (include directories).

Ok, thanks.

Should I include the other project having the header file or what should I add here?

Regards.

Include directories are directories where the compiler looks for header files. If you use header files from a non-standard location, then add that non-standard location in the include path.
