Hi Experts,
I am trying to use log4c in a C project.  The C app would be running in Linux(embedded).  I was thinking I can use log4c by simply copying the .so file and the header files into my project.  But, the documentation available everywhere points to installing it( apt-get install liblog4c-dev etc)

What are the steps required to use this?  I believe this is pretty much same for any other libs( like openssl)...  thank you.

To avoid installation, I'd try to statically link against log4c - this would save you all that hassle. You should be able to specify that either when running './configure' or edit the resulting Makefile to create a static library instead of a dynamic one.

thanks.  So, I would just grab the liblog4c.a file and statically link.  How about the header files?

The headers aren't affected by that. As opposed to Windows, there's no 'dllexport' keyword for UN*X/Linux, all you have to do is changing the respective compiler and linker switches, i.e. removing the '-shared' switch from the gcc options and adapting the output filename to end with '.a'.
