    Why does Dev-C++ not look for my include

    HI I am using Dev-C++ and I was trying to work on something new. I am trying to use SDK 5.1 for TTS but when I "#include <sapi.h>" it says its not there. Will I look for the file include and found it in SDK... but I dont get why the compiler says its not there? Is there something I miss on when I was trying to use it?

    Try replacing the < and > with "s and specify the full path to your include, i.e:-
    #include "C:\stuff\SDK\sapi.h"
    And we'll go from there.

    Or you can move the relavent header files to your compiler's include directory. Or best of all, add the SDK's include directory to your compiler's includes search path. For GCC:
    gcc -Ic:\somewhere\include\ hippo.c -o hippo.exe
    In Dev-C++ it's in the compiler options somewhere ("Extra include directories").

    You also have to have all of your files in a project if is a header file you made
