C C++ on AS/400

I am new to C so please forgive..     I am trying to compile a C program on an as400/iseries and I can do the hello world and all that no problem.   I am now trying to #include some third party c and h files that are in the IFS.   No matter what I it can't seem to find these files.  If any one can help with this it would be great or is familure with using libtiff even better

Thanks in advance..

sorry for any duplications.  This new setup made it hard to find the right catagories

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Interesting. I've never tried to include external files from the IFS, but I almost always include custom h files from my local system.

For example, if I include "mycustom.h" in my C program, I put the file in a source-member called MYCUSTOM in source-physical-file called H.

HTH,

Review the INCDIR() parameter on the CRTCMOD and/or CRTBNDC commands for compiling C modules or a bound C program.

Also, review the OPTION() parameter for use of:
*INCDIRFIRST or *NOINCDIRFIRST
*SYSINCPATH or *NOSYSINCPATH
*STDINC or *NOSTDINC

Also, you might check to see whether or not you are using an INCLUDE environment variable during compiles.
