    Setting Include/Library paths Linux

    I was wondering how I can set up my library and include paths in Linux (Fedora 8) so that for example with Boost I can do the following.

    #include<boost/filesystem/operations.hpp>

    Also where is the best place to store libraries in Linux, right now mine currently reside in /usr/lib/.

    Thank you.

    You are presumably using g++, so the GCC docs should be the place to look:
    Options for Directory Search
    Options for Linking

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
