Hi Andrew, thanks for your quick response.|
You write "Another thing is that the folder should be present not only on disk but in a project in eclipse"
Do you mean that I should be able to see my Include folder in the Project Explorer pane?
As you can see from my preferred layout structure above, I am referring to an Include folder that contains APIs for other libraries.
I would prefer not to have them embedded in the folders that contain the implementations of those APIs.
So, the result is that the Include folder is a peer of the project folders and is not inside any of them.
I understand I could change that approach, but this is what I prefer for all kinds of reasons, and I would like to think that even if its not "best" according to some, it should be possible to have this flexibility when using Eclipse.
So, the Include folder doesnt appear in the Project Explorer pane.
Now I could add it, if this is absolutely necessary for it to be recognized in the "Paths and Symbols" property page, but I dont now how to do it.
I tried right clicking on the Project Explorer pane and adding all kinds of options.
That seemed to take me along the track to either creating a new folder or linking to an existing resource.
I suppose I am doing the latter, though it bugs me why a simple request to add a relative path requires me to select an Advanced button to add Linked Resources and read up about what that exactly does.
Why isnt it enough to simply have those files on disk?
If I do need to add them to the workspace, how should that be done?
