Go Up to Building Applications
Example programs demonstrating how to use the InterBase API are included in the
examples subdirectory of the InterBase installation directory. There is also a sample .
On NT, there are two make files,
makefile.bc for the compiler and linker, and
makefile.msc for the Microsoft compiler and linker. In both files, you must modify the
IBASE environment variable to point to an absolute path.
.bc make file, modify the
BCDIR variable to point to the absolute path to the compiler and linker.
.msc make file, modify the
MSCDIR variable to point to the absolute path to the Microsoft compiler and linker.
To build the example applications on NT using C++, use the following command:
make -B -f makefile.bc all
To build the example applications using Microsoft C++, use this command:
nmake -B -f makefile.msc all
On UNIX systems, the command to build the example applications is as follows:
