    Adding MinGW Search Directories

    Does anyone know how to add directories where MinGW searches for include files and libraries? Right know I have to use the -I tag for include files. I haven't tried libraries yet, but I'm pretty sure it's -L. But how would I add the directory "C:/msys/1.0/local/include/" so I would never have to put -I in the command line syntax?

    Thanks!

    Well you could configure the compiler driver (how, I don't know) to always search that path.

    But compared to all the other things you need to do in creating a project, this seems at best just a minor annoyance.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
