    Dev-C++ Build Failure

    I'm trying to build a file in Dev-C++ and when I try to compile, I get this in the log:

    Executing make...
    make.exe -f "..\..\Documents and Settings\Haseo\Desktop\mizore\console-src\Makefile" all
    make.exe: *** No rule to make target `/usr/include/math.h', needed by `AliceConsoleShell.o'. Stop.

    Execution terminated

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Could a moderator split this from the 1 year old unrelated thread?

    catchra: Your makefile says that you some file (probbably AliceConsoleShell.c or .cpp) is depending on /usr/include/math.h - which make can not find, and there is no "recipe" to create such a file. Considering that you appear to be compiling on Windows, perhaps you shouldn't have dependencies on /usr/include files, as these are Unix/Linux type directories. [I also think that makefiles should not have dependencies on system include files, but that is a slightly different matter].

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    I get maybe two dozen requests for help with some sort of programming or design problem every day. Most have more sense than to send me hundreds of lines of code. If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
