I am new to C++. I have unzipped Victor Shoup's NTL C++ number theory library, but I am not sure what the best directory in which to store it, so that Code::Blocks recognizes the .h files (or whichever files it needs to recognize in order to use NTL library functions).
How do I set up the NTL library so that Code::Blocks recognizes it?
From searching the forums, I see that I can open Settings > "Compiler and debugger settings" to get a dialogue window that allows me to add paths to the unzipped folders "include" subfolder in the compiler and linker's search directories tab.
I did this, then when I went to F9 some .cpp scripts in the unzipped folder's "test" subfolder (as suggested on Shoup's installation page), I received various errors that the compiler could not find the files referenced inthe #include line.
I am running Windows XP--it is a dinosaur, I know.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if I am leaving out important information. Also, please forgive my ignorance on these matters.
