I have downloaded IVT library ( Integrating Vision Toolkit), I made my app dependent on this library ( as DSP project in VC6.0) , I can partially compile the app because I get “permission denied” when I get to #include preprocessor statement. I have checked the directory permissions and I have grayed out “read only” checked in IVT directory. All of the sources I used so far said that such grayed out “read only” checked ( in XP) does not make any difference (?) when directories are involved. All of my app directories have that grayed out “read only” checked and I have no problem including other (OpenCV) libraries. I am tempted to recopy / re-download the IVT files , but would like to hear from the forum what is going on here. Appreciate any advise. Cheers Vaclav
Addendum Here is the real code snippet I must be doing something really stupid.
Do I have to create my own parent #include file ( such as stdafx.h) with all the other headers or is it a time to learn how to use CMake?
I'm not sure what you mean, the two are not connected. Using pre-compiled headers via stdafx.h merely helps to reduce the compile time of your source files, but you still need to #include all the individual header files. I have used make in the past and it is a good system, but I don't think it offers any advantages when you are creating Windows applications. Using the VS build system will do all you need.
One of the bygone useful features of the ancient days before DOS programming vanished, was ability, when I wanted to calculate something quickly, to quickly write a program where control started at the beginning and ran down the text like in a knitting pattern and and I did not have to catch Windows messages and events. A short example follows at the end of this message. Please, how can I use Visual C++ to write and run such a program, and how to run it? (I have Windows Vista).
