    help with book code

    Im reading Bjarne Stroustup's "Programming: Principals and Practice using C++" and Im having trouble figuring out how to set up the graphics code that he uses to simplify the FLTK library, quite strangely he does not have instructions on how to set it up in the appendix . I got FLTK running fine, I just cant figure out how to add these files to a project. Whats strange is he has a make file to go along with this code despite the fact the book uses MSVC. I know this is a lot to ask to have you guys figure out for me, but Im hoping maybe someone has worked through this book and knows what to do.

    edit: I just realized I should probably have posted this thread in the Windows or Linux platform section, feel free to move it if its in the wrong place.

    So your using an IDE? Why not just create a new file within the IDE's project, and just copy and paste the file contents. Then set the link definitions if you so need. (Which appears to be none)

    sorry for the bother, Id delete this thread but I dont see an option for deleting

    We don't delete threads because they contain valuable information someone else might find useful!
