It is possible to use libraries with an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), though they must be installed manually and specified directly for a project. This video shows how the process works in the Code::Blocks IDE, though not every library can be installed manually and not every IDE allows third-party libraries to be used.
- [Instructor] Unlike the command prompt, … with an integrated development environment or IDE, … you must manually install the library on your system. … Make a note of where the header … and library files are located … and if you can move them into an Include or Lib folder … that's used directly by the IDE, … that's a good idea. … Now if you don't move the files, … you must specify their directories for a project … before you build and even then, … not every IDE may provide for downloaded libraries … to be added to your projects. … Here in Code::Blocks, … you must create a project for your code … before you can link in a library so, … start a new project, … make it a Console application for the C programming language … and let's make a title … since I'm going to be testing the curl library. … We'll call this one curltest … and confirm it's where you want it located in this folder … and we don't need to debug configuration. … Our release is fine and the project skeleton is created. … So to test my manually installed curl library, …
