ugg, I just spent an hour, an hour figuring out how to link a dll into an app I found here at CP. I just don't get a chance to write any code any more and this is the result. Wasting time trying to remember something just because I haven't done it in a very long time. I no longer work in an area that values innovation and simplification of the work load. Actually they seem to enjoy making every task five times more difficult than it need be. Sigh | :sigh:

Enough complaining, so as a result of this I'm starting to think about finding a project out on source forge that needs help. I have looked in the past but really never found anything that suits my interests. Not to mention a project that has source available for evaluation, who wants to get involved in someone else's rats nest? Well I will forge ahead and continue my search for something to work on. We will see how that goes.

Oh and the app I was working on that got me started on this mini rant. Oddly enough it was a covert project for work, to convert PDFs into text. It worked quite well while testing, but when faced with the 30 / 40 meg PDFs I have to deal with, it didn't do much of anything. sigh None the less still an interesting project check it out extract plain text from a PDF file[^]

hmmm maybe I should figure out why that app failed fix it so no one has to put up with PDFs.

Just in case you (well okay, really I mean me Roll eyes | :rolleyes: ) ever forget when trying to link zlib[^](zipping lib) into your app. It's realy simple Blush | :O

  1. Include the headers for the dll in your app
  2. Open app properties, navigate to linker
  3. From the Category combo box select "input"
  4. Add the lib file to the "object/library modules"
  5. Lastly, the dll will need to be in the build directory
