You need to understand how to do this without Eclipse
then you will understand what Eclipse/CDT needs from you.
https://tldp.org/HOWTO/Program-Library-HOWTO/
https://makefiletutorial.com/

If you are looking for a detailed step-by-step procedure, it's not as simple as you might think.
A lot depends on the type of CDT project.

Generally, for any external library,

  • You need to tell the compiler where the include files can be found [GCC -I (capital I) flag].
  • You need to tell the linker where the libraries can be found and which to use [GCC -L and -l (small L) flags]
  • Tell the Indexer where the include files can be found
    Project --> Properties --> C/C++ General --> Preprocessor Include Paths, Macros, etc

I've assumed you are using gcc/g++.
If you are using something else you should use comparable options.

How you do the first two depends on the build system being used.
If it is a Managed Build (i.e., Eclipse creates a Makefile), set the options using
Project --> Properties --> Settings --> Tool Settings tab

For any other build methods (e.g., CMake or your own makefiles), you should refer to tutorials on using them.

The README.md file at github tells you what you need for compiling and linking
https://github.com/json-c/json-c/blob/master/README.md#linking

Thanks for your response.
What did you mean by "include files". Does it ,mean header and c files.
I use MinGW.
I have these files in the json-c folder.

Yes, usually headers and not very often c source.
You appear to be facing a very large learning curve.

This forum is not for programming questions.
I suggest you search the web for a tutorial on using this library
or ask at its github site.
